We are very pleased to announce that we are teaming up and hosting a monthly hub for carers of people who care for someone with a mental health issue, carers who need emotional support and encouraging carers to meet up and peer support each other.
This month we are having a special workshop on HIV and Mental Health to mark world AIDS Day on the 1st of December.
Carers will have the opportunity to learn about HIV transmission, how HIV effects your Mental Health, how reduced good mental health can make people take risky choices. This workshop is for carers of someone with Mental Health issues as well as carers who have limited positive Mental Health.
Studies have shown peer support, particularly with mental health and emotional issues, can lead to an increased sense of hope and a feeling of empowerment, and diminish feelings of isolation.
