Make a difference…

Volunteers are really important to Self Help and the work we do

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 15.45.56We value their dedication and commitment to helping people with mental health problems by making a difference to their lives in a variety of ways within our services.

As a user-led organisation, many of our staff and volunteers have personal experience of mental health issues. This is what makes our charity so unique.

“The most enjoyable part of this role is meeting and helping clients. It is so rewarding knowing someone leaves this service feeling better and that I have contributed to this”

Coronavirus update

In light of the current situation, we are making changes to the way we deliver services at the moment. However, please note that all our Psychological Wellbeing services are still open and accepting referrals. One-to-one appointments that would normally be delivered face-to-face will now take place over the phone or through video call. There is no need to call us to confirm – your regular point of contact will call you at the time your appointment was scheduled.

We are also no longer holding groups inside. We’re currently arranging alternatives where possible through considering walking or virtual groups. Please contact your group facilitator, or the centre where the group runs from, for more information.

If you’re worried, think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus or want further information, see the latest advice from Public Health England.

Finally, if you’re struggling through self-isolation, please don’t feel alone. There are local community groups being created all over the country, which you can find here. Alternatively, you can call our community centres in your local area, which you can find here.
