NW Counselling Hub (NWCH) will deliver ManChat / WomanChat to increase beneficiaries’ resilience against mental ill health and reduce their reliance on NHS services by:
•Reducing loneliness and isolation - weekly peer-support/befriending group.
•Improving emotional health - weekly mindfulness group.
•Encouraging a greater sense of personal wellbeing - creating meaningful peer connections.
•Encouraging a greater sense of purpose - initiate ManChat / WomanChat activities outside of weekly meetups, during and after the project.
•Improving coping skills and self-care - rely on ManChat / WomanChat members as a first-line coping mechanism.
