Islanders invited to discuss Mental Health counselling services

15 May 2023

Islanders are invited to discuss what Jersey needs from counselling services for depression and anxiety at two drop-in sessions on Tuesday 30 May. 

They re being held at:

  • 12:30pm-2:00pm, Tuesday 30 May, Mind Drop-in Centre, Seale Street
  • 5:30pm-7:00pm, Tuesday 30 May, Education Centre, Jersey General Hospital

Each of the sessions will involve a brief presentation, followed by small group discussions on how future counselling services could best meet Islanders’ needs. Everyone is welcome whether they have experience of counselling services or not. All contributions will be treated confidentially.

Director of Mental Health and Adult Social Care, Andy Weir, said: “Everybody’s mental health and wellbeing is just as important as their physical health. It is vital that we, in Jersey are able to offer services that really work for Islanders. 

“It is not just a case of hearing from the people that use the services that we have, we want to hear from everyone in our Island community. I encourage anyone who wants to help make a difference and help shape what we need from our preventative and early intervention services for mental health to take part in the discussion.” 

Those who are unable to make either of the meetings but do have a contribution to give can email by Wednesday 31 May.
