The Groups provide a mix of facilitated group discussion along with workshops and activities to help people effectively manage their own mental health. It provides a safe, confidential space for people who need support with their mental health.
It is a social group that welcomes all without stigma or judgment.
- For people who have limited social networks, feel alone or isolated because of their mental ill health and would benefit from learning more effective techniques to improve their health and wellbeing
- For anyone who volunteers you will be involved in welcoming new members, the delivery of the sessions as well as support members to build up a toolbox to support their own wellbeing and mental health
We would like a good team player and can work well with others. You will work under the direction of the Wellbeing Coach but will have good communication skills.
