HelpingMinds run a series of ongoing and specialised workshops that expand our support platform and provide an organised and safe environment for our clients to learn and engage with each other.
The groups are aimed at carers who wish to connect with others who support someone with mental health issues, and who understand the everyday challenges faced in the carer role.
Our courses are for people who would like to feel connected but do not require counselling support or would like more informal support in conjunction with counselling support.
