Health - ‘Impact’ Project – 16+ years
If you are an adult living with a long term mental health condition, this programme aims to improve your well-being and help you build your skills to cope with everyday life.
It's a great opportunity for you to try out different things and choose what works best for you. It might be working individually with someone to start with, being part of a group, taking part in creative sessions like arts and crafts or working on improving your lifestyle with healthy activities. You might want to do some cooking, get busy baking bread or find a quiet space to read a book or listen to music, share your thoughts and ideas or do a little bit of all of these... or try something completely different.

Counselling and Well Being Service
Counselling provides a safe, non-judgemental environment in which you can explore any issues which are causing you concern or distress.
Counselling is most effective when you have decided yourself that you want to come along. No-one else can decide if it is the right form of support for you or if the timing is right.
If you are not sure if counselling is for you, you can attend an initial appointment to help you decide.
