Situation

Lack of support for people with mental health problems, who are trying to move their lives forward and re-engage with social activities and work.

Solution

Friend will provide supervised volunteer "Mentors" who will work on a close 1:1 basis with people. Listening to their fears, their aspirations and interests. Helping to source activities, attend with people initially - if necessary - and review their progress with them in a non-critical way. Counselling support will also be available to individuals engaged on this programme.
