    Mental Health Resources

    13 May

    Mental Health Awareness Week will be taking place from 13th to 19th May. We will be embracing this week through sharing a whole range of local resources that will help protect your wellbeing and improve your mental health…

    You’re Never Alone Mental Health Support Group

    This service offers a mental health support group on Facebook, for anyone who feels they would benefit from reaching out and having a chat. No matter the time of day, you can privately message across Facebook or call the team for support. The service is run by a team who all have lived experience of mental health, abuse and learning difficulties. They also host face to face meetings in Chesterfield every four weeks, for those who would like to connect in person. The aim of the service is to bridge the gap between referrals and actually receiving much-needed support.
