A new support group has been set up in Ferndale for those affected by, or concerned about, depression – brought to you by the award-winning Maerdy Association for Self Help!
Communities First Maerdy has developed the new Ferndale Support Group which meets in Trerhondda Chapel every Tuesday from 11am where, over a cup of tea or coffee, you can chat confidentially about a range of issues.
It will follow the theme of the acclaimed Maerdy Association for Self Help (MASH), which has won awards for its outstanding work, offering peer-to-peer support to enable people from all walks of life to raise, discuss and address mental health issues.
Around one in four people will experience some degree of depression in their lives. How disabling this depression is will depend upon the individual affected and their environment.
It does affect different people in different ways, which is why the approach adopted by MASH – and now being delivered in Ferndale – is so important, offering informal advice and support.
Visit the Trerhondda Chapel, Ferndale, every Tuesday from 11am to chat about a range of issues. If you can’t make these sessions, why not visit MASH, who meet every Wednesday from 6pm in the meeting room at Teify House.
