AWARE is delighted to be opening up our 24th support group this week in Ards.

 

The support group will open to the public on Wednesday 6 April at 7pm in Ards Community Centre on Frances Street and will run on a fortnightly basis thereafter. 

 

The support group will welcome people with depression and bipolar disorder as well as their carers. The groups are facilitated by highly trained volunteers who are supported to carry out their role.

 

Depression can be a very isolating illness. Our groups provide an opportunity to meet others with similar experiences, this helps to explain the illness and allows group members to speak freely about how they are feeling, lets group members share information, discuss options and support each other to move forward.

 

For more information about this group or any of our other support groups, call our information line on 08451 20 29 61.
