Raising awareness of mental health and wellbeing

Our funding supports essential mental health counselling for people in our communities

Counselling sessions are tailored to each person, providing a confidential and impartial space where they can be listened to and explore the issues that are concerning them.

The sessions promote healthy coping strategies that could help young people to manage whatever issues are causing problems for them.

Using technology to improve mental health

Understanding the influence of technology on mental health is crucial in today’s world. Therefore, our programmes use IT and wellbeing to bring people together. Group sessions that cross over different generations help to increase confidence and reduce social isolation. Seeing a friendly face, or being able to speak to a colleague supports the key elements of positive mental health.
