Minds at Ease
This project started in March 2009 providing specialist support to people with or at risk of developing mental health difficulties. The team support individuals with a number of issues and work closely with community mental health teams ensuring the service user receives a client led service. We support individuals and their families empowering them to manage their situations but having the option of extra support if they require it.
One of the objectives is to raise awareness of mental health within the community. On a monthly basis we deliver a two hour workshop to different community groups raising awareness of what is mental health, signs, symptoms and how to get help but most of all to remove the stigma attached to mental health.
