Feeling Strong: Covid-19 Support

Updated: 22/09/2020/14:00

Feeling Strong have moved their mental health drop-in service online via video chat. Open 3pm to 6pm Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. For further information see below.

We have set up a range of different pages that cover COVID-19 topics. These include: COVID-19 and mental health, news, local information and isolation activities.

Your Mental Health and Covid-19

It is important to look after our mental health and wellbeing, and COVID-19 may make this more challenging for people. We have put together some essential services and information to aid those people who might need a helping hand. If you are able to contribute to helping others (donations or time) get in contact via our online platforms. Thank you in advance for supporting your community.

Struggling with self-isolation or can't access services? We changed our Drop-in service to a Video Chat service to make sure that you can still get the support you need:
