So that we can provide a informal mental health support group in the heart of our community, informal and welcoming environment.

by Charlotte Walker in Dartford, England, United Kingdom

We have two qualified mental health first aiders who are qualified to run small support groups, where people can meet similar people who are struggling like them. We will offer men only and female only sessions as well as mixed social events. People will have the opportunity to have open  discussions about their struggles and fears and share different experiences in a safe confidential space. We will also run self esteem and confidence building workshops, for when the individual's are ready to explore further, but there is no pressure or targets, we focus more about having a safe space.

We have an amazing relaxing light space which will be available for these groups to be held. We are in the middle of the high street, so we can be found easily.

During the Covid -1 9 outbreak, we have seen a huge increase nationally of mental health cases, this is our way of trying to support our local community at local level, without long waiting lists or medication being thrown at them. We have researched this kind of social prescribing and have seen how successful it can be.
