From Monday 6 September 2021 we will be returning to our face to face Anxiety and Depression Drop-in group at The Altrincham Methodist Church.

This group offers a sympathetic and non-judgmental space where you can meet others who also struggle with anxiety and depression. Our groups care about your experiences and really understand. They offer help, information and a place for people to share ideas on how to cope with depression.

For more information, email: csgroups@selfhelpservices.org.uk

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.

A number of face to face drop-in groups are now running again with more expected to follow. Further information on the groups available can be viewed at: www.selfhelpservices.org.uk/onlinegroups

We have also created an online Peer Support group on Facebook, which can be accessed at: www.facebook.com/groups/selfhelppeersupport.

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.
