Join in and help to create a world with good mental health for all. Find out more and get involved: The public’s knowledge and understanding of common mental health issues like anxiety and depression has moved in a positive direction over the last 20 years. This has helped a lot of people. However, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem, but many still feel isolated, ashamed, and unable to open up on their lived experience. Grace House provides a range of support services including Counselling, Therapy workshops, Yoga, Reiki, Boxercise and much, much more to support families with both their physical and mental wellbeing.

Grace House, One place your Space programme has provided counselling and therapeutic support to over 680 parents disabled children and their siblings in the past seven year and continues to encourage everyone to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.

75% of mental illnesses start before a person’s 18th birthday, with most long-term mental health problems beginning in adolescence. Our range of targeted support sessions for disabled children has developed young people’s resilience through life’s unexpected turns and transitions. In Mental Health Week, we highlight the importance of mental health support from a young age.

If you would like to improve both you and your family’s mental health contact us at Grace House for information on a host of active, fun physical and mental well-being sessions. Email Keith at [email protected] to find out more.
