For our Cheshire customers, we are teaming up with healthcare charity Making Space for our new Wellbeing First project. If you are worried about depression, stress, anxiety, worry, or low mood, our professional support workers will be able to provide friendly, one-to-one support.
This early intervention project is designed to help you take control of your life, feel confident, and build on your self-worth in a safe and supportive environment.
Wellbeing First is open to all our Cheshire customers, and referrals and enquires can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Liverpool City Region, we have teamed up with First Person Project to deliver bespoke mental health support to our customers. First Person Project is a Community Interest Company, which means it invests in communities by providing specialist, accredited mental health training, education programmes, coaching and support workshops. Its aim is to create stronger communities and improve mental health and wellbeing for all.
They are currently running free sessions at the Irene Milson Resource Centre in Kelvin Grove, Liverpool 8 every Friday. Fill Your Cup is a drop-in session between 11.45am and 1.15pm. The Resilient Minds course covers different subjects every week and takes place from 9.30am to 11.30am.
Emma Sneyd, head of engagement and partnerships at Plus Dane said: “We know with the cost of living crisis, among many other things, there is a lot going on for people to worry about and this can really have an effect on mental health.
“Opening up about it really is a good place to start, and these projects help us to reach out to customers and enable us to provide meaningful support to help build positivity and resilience.”
