Self Help Services: Drop in Support Groups in Manchester
Drop-in Self Help Groups are support groups for individuals experiencing social phobia, anxiety or depression. The groups run on a drop-in basis which means that there is no formal referral process. Groups offer a free, confidential and safe space where people can come together to socialise, share their experiences, swap advice and coping strategies, and meet others affected by similar issues.
Groups are facilitated by experienced group facilitators, all of whom have lived experience of a mental health issue and are paid as consultants to deliver the groups. The eligibility criteria for the groups is that you must be experiencing a common mental health issue to access, and that you are able to adhere to the ground rules of the group (around confidentiality, boundaries, respecting each other and so on).
