We are here for you this Festive Season.
We know that Christmas isn’t the “The most wonderful time of the year” for many of us, especially those of us struggling with Mental Health problems. So, this Christmas, we are wishing you a peaceful and gentle festive season!
We have worked hard to keep many of our services operating over Christmas and with minimal disruption. Please see below a full list of our services that will remain open and any changes you need to be aware of.
