Congratulations to Second Thoughts East Yorkshire

By | Front Page News, Local News | No Comments

‘Second Thoughts East Yorkshire’ (STEY) has been awarded a £9,970 grant from the Big Lottery ‘Community Fund’.

Based in Barmby Moor, STEY’s aim is to promote good mental health for people living in the East Riding of Yorkshire and Hull. The charity has no fixed training room, but responding to need, it hires venue across East Yorkshire so that people living in the suburbs and rural areas can access support near their home.

Supporting people with mental health problems and their carers, the charity delivers life skill support workshops including confidence building, assertive communication, anxiety management, skill awareness and effective communication.

The sessions run over 4 weeks for around 3 hours per week and all of the workshops are free to participants. STEY has already run many sets of workshops in Hull, Willerby, Anlaby, Hessle, Beverley, Driffield, Goole, Pocklington, Hornsea and Withernsea and with this grant, from 1st April 2019 they can continue to deliver many more across the county.

A set has started in Beverley, with more arranged to start in Pocklington and Hornsea within the next month.

As well as supporting people managing mental health issues ranging from mild anxiety to depression to more enduring conditions, STEY also works with the carers of people managing their mental health problems and with employers too. Through supporting employers with mental health awareness and advice on effective management in this area, STEY helps employees to retain their jobs and so avoid long periods of absence and subsequent reduction in quality of life.

Key Worker needed

By | Front Page News, Local News, News | No Comments

A young man has been in touch with us regarding support beyond August of this year. The organisation that currently supports him with a key worker will be losing its funding, meaning that he will have no support beyond that month.

Currently he does 2 hours a week as a volunteer dealing with reception and routine admin duties, and is confident in his role, and is keen to maintain this into the future.

If any of our member organisations feel that they can help, can they contact me, Ali Middle, on 01482 499031 or e-mail ali@nbforum.org.uk and I will liaise
