Let's Talk About It - Support Services

Peer support

Peer support provides a place where participants can share lived experiences and advice with each other. There are different types of groups where you can talk via instant chat, phone in or on Zoom, all that aim to:

  • Provide a safe space for you to speak openly about experiences, feelings and thoughts
  • Create a supportive community to share advice and coping mechanisms with each other
  • Be a place where you can feel heard and understood

Aware Support & Self Care Groups

Charity Aware provide two offerings for Support & Self-Care Groups - Phone-in Support & Zoom Support.

Participants can share their experience and offer an exchange of thoughts and techniques around self-care and resilience in a supportive, confidential and proactive environment. These are safe spaces that provide an opportunity for people who are experiencing anxiety, mild to moderate depression, bipolar disorder and mood related conditions to talk openly.

  • Groups are limited to 10 people (8 participants and 2 volunteers)

Who are Aware?

Aware is the national organisation providing free support, education and information services to those impacted by anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and related mood conditions. Aware was founded in 1985 by Dr. Patrick McKeon and a small but dedicated team of volunteers, many of whom had their own personal experience with depression, or bipolar disorder.
