Coffee & Company
Feeling lonely or depressed? Are the stresses of life getting you down?
A friendly face and a chance to chat may be all you need to get you back on track - and this is available thanks to a new , informal support service for people in the St. Asaph area.
Vale of Clwyd Mind are holding regular coffee mornings for local residents who may be feeling less than flourishing for one reason or another. The weekly drop-in sessions are held every Thursday at Jacob’s Ladder from 10am to 12 noon.
Experienced Vale of Clwyd Mind staff will be available to listen to people who, as a result of the November floods or simply because of the stresses and strains of everyday life, wish to talk about how they are feeling.
Practical support will also be available and those who need it will be signposted to organisations such as Age Concern, Denbighshire Care & Repair, DVSC and Citizens Advice Bureau.
Chief Executive of Vale of Clwyd Mind, Geoff Lees said: “We have been considering setting up as group in St. Asaph for some time, but the problems that local people have experienced as a result of the floods have underlined a very real need for a friendly face and the chance to chat.”
“We are aiming to reach people who may be struggling with stress and loneliness - so we encourage anyone who would like to enjoy a couple of hours break to come along and join us for ‘coffee and company’”
