New local mental health charity, Lochaber Mindfit, has received a £500 donation from Ferguson Transport and Shipping to go towards advertising its peer-to-peer group.
Lochaber MindFit secretary Sharon Wells told the Lochaber Times that, with the New Year approaching, the charity believes a lot of people will need to reach out for support and to talk.
‘So we are relocating from CrossFit to Inverlochy Hall from January, with a ladies’ night on Tuesday, and a men’s night on Monday,’ she added.
‘Everyone who walks through our doors is likely to have been affected directly or indirectly by depression, anxiety or suicide. The numbers are too great and the wounds are too deep to put down on paper.
‘We can’t promise to heal these wounds, but we can pledge that nobody needs to be alone anymore and we endeavour to nurture our group to become a safe sanctuary.’
