Support Groups

Support Groups are available to offer longer term help to women. Membership of support groups is usually for 12 months and during this time you will take part in a range of activities to help you understand how you can manage your mental health better. Mental health recovery is a big part of these groups as well as developing peer support networks with other women involved so that you can continue to meet without us.
