Due to Covid 19 our support group and drop in need bigger space. Without a bigger space social distancing can not take place unless we turn people away.
We know that after lock down is released the will be a need for support while people wait for services, appointment and care and please remember the mental health service in Trowbridge have been decimated.
I know from personal experience that peer lead services based on sharing lived experiences and building a social network that supports you. Because this network is filled with people who experiences are similar to your own everyone just understands and it so much easier to talk.
Trowbridge Service Users Group offer a free drop in with no time limit and we don’t charge because we that live with mental illness will find any reason not to go out so if their no cost their no barrier.
We have been about for two year but it only in 2020 we became an official group and since then we have to find money to cover the basics but now we need about £3000 to cover the rent on a larger location to insure we are their for those that need support quickly while they wait for professional care
