Mental Health Community Support Group In Scarborough

Mental Health Community Support Group In Scarborough

Published by Karen Liu at 10:54am 5th March 2020.

A community support group has been created in Scarborough for those with mental health issues or a disability.

'Speak Out' is a chance for people to talk about real life issues that they are facing, like depression, housing, or money problems.

The group says it offers a safe space and peer-to-peer support to help individuals speak out about these problems. 

Helen Speak, who is the Founder, said:

"It's open to everybody over the age of 18, who suffers with any form of mental health condition and any disability.

We're giving that option of this platform for people to be able to speak out about it, and each week we talk about a different mental health issue.

There's no pressure for anybody to say anything they don't want to. 

Just come along, have a chat and get to know us.

We're just a regular bunch of people and we haven't always gone down the right paths in our lives, none of us are perfect.

That's what we're trying to get out there, we're trying to say that people have a past but people shouldn't have to suffer."

The group is meeting at The Gallows Close Centre, on Endcliff Crescent, from 9.30am until 11.30am tomorrow (Friday 6th March).
