Do you suffer, or know someone who suffers from mental health issues?
If so, then New Horizons can help. Beginning on January 16th, 2014, New Horizons – a youth project which supports young people aged 18-25 living with mental health issues and who live in Rhondda Cynon Taf – will begin a new project where you can relax in a chilled environment and participate in and get help with: recovery STAR, peer support, signposting, accessing information which will benefit you, enjoy a free internet cafe and get involved in different activities and educational and stimulating training.
Also, on the 23rd January, a Routes to Recovery course will begin. The course is free for anyone living in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil, who is over 18 and has experience of mental ill health.
People who have been on the courses say that they have made new friends, and their confidence has improved. Some people have gone on to voluntary work, college or into paid work. Often people have said that they feel more in control of their illness.
