"Thank you for being there at the end of the phone just at the right time for me.” Reachout Client, April 2020

The impact of covid19

Last year, Mental Health resource supported over 350 people through face to face group work, across 4 of our projects. Our clients often have complex, enduring mental health conditions ranging from anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar, boderline personality disorder, psychosis, Schizophrenia, self-harm, obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders and suicidal feelings.

Covid19 has deeply heightened our clients' anxiety levels.

  • Many are now experiencing deteriorating mental and physical health, further compounded by sleeping problems.
  • Many of our elderly clients without wifi or smart phones are at greater risk of isolation and are often unable to access online shopping and repeat prescriptions.
  • Many clients can't afford to make calls to stay connected to the community.
  • People have to deal with immediate concerns including food and benefit issues, loneliness, bereavement, housing problems, anti-social residents and isolation.

We are supporting our clients by providing essential telephone and online support, to help them stay connected with the community and to give people information on how to maintain their mental wellbeing. We have significantly adapted our services to provide:

Fundraising for teleconferencing costs.

We are raising funds for our teleconferencing services, such as art and creative writing groups, Men's support groups and Crisis cafe groups, to ensure that none of our clients face a costly barrier to accessing our teleconferencing services and that they can access this support for free.
