New online support launched for people in North Wales with mental health problems
An online support service has been launched to help reduce the loneliness and isolation experienced by people with mental health problems and their carers across North Wales.
The Health Board has funded the ‘North Wales Space’ service, which is being delivered by Welsh mental health charity, Hafal.
The online peer support community, which is monitored 24/7, offers a safe space for people to talk about their mental health in a supportive environment, connect with others in similar situations, and receive useful information on services in all six counties of North Wales.
It is part of the Clic online platform established by Hafal in 2016 to provide better support for people with mental health problems and their carers in Wales.
Thanks to funding by Mental Health UK partners at Lloyds Banking Group, during the coronavirus pandemic Hafal were able to make Clic available to everyone living in the UK. It has been a vital lifeline to thousands of those struggling with loneliness and isolation during the pandemic.
North Wales Space is a dedicated microsite of Clic, enabling people to connect to like-minded people across the region and find information on local support services.
You can access the North Wales Space website here.
