ManxPACT - help in the community

About our work:
We meet each month with our growing membership to discuss the latest issues on the Island in terms of Mental Health.

We have just started a regular weekly clinic to meet members of the public to offer help and signposting to any in need of assistance to facilitate management of their Mental Health issues...

 

whether you need a chat with someone to combat your loneliness, or a listing ear to discuss your thoughts or feelings with a fellow sufferer who truly understands what they are going through or more professional help via signposting to Manx Care, local Charities who cater for your illness, disorder or issue, then come meet with us each Saturday.  (See below for details of our current meetings and locations)
