Here is a link to Greatest Hits Radio’s online story about the CFRs, written by multimedia reporter George Sharpe about Community Front Rooms and support available as part of ‘Access Mental Health Dorset.
I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to me so please donate and help me reach my target of £600 in aid of The Burrough Harmony Centre (Harmony)
Harmony is a local mental health support group based in Bridport, West Dorset, of which I am a Trustee. They provide a friendly, welcoming, comfortable space with informal sessions offering peer support, information, signposting and activities to local people who are living with a mental health problem. They also run the local Community Front Room for anyone reaching a mental health crisis who needs a non judgmental, safe space to talk and be listened to.
The pandemic has had a big impact on people’s mental health and wellbeing. As part of their programme Harmony plan to start Wellbeing sessions offering a range of activities to support local people who struggle with their mental wellbeing. They plan to bring in bring in tutors to do one off wellbeing therapy sessions across such activities as yoga, art, music, creative writing, nutrition to support coming out of lockdown.
Anything you can contribute towards helping me achieve my target will be massively appreciated.

Harmony Carers Support Group

A new group to support Carers of people experiencing a mental health issue will be starting on Tuesday 16th March between 7.00-8.30pm at The Assembly Rooms, Gundry Lane or via zoom. It has been recognised the impact and pressure on those caring for loved ones with poor mental health can have on carers own wellbeing. This group is aimed at people over the age of 18 years who support family and friends of any age with a mental health condition. It will offer a range of opportunities that fosters wellbeing and increase understanding about the issues carers face and the support available including guidance on protecting your mental health as a carer as well as peer support. The group will provide a safe, confidential environment in which to share experiences with others and one where they may receive both practical and emotional support. No referral is necessary. Anyone interested in finding out more about this group should contact Caroline Gamble on firstname.lastname@example.org.
