New support group launch next week

A NEW peer support and friendship group will be launched in the upper Calder Valley next week.

The group, which is a Healthy Minds Calderdale project, is aimed at people who live in isolation or are suffering from depression.

A spokesperson said: “We are hoping to generate interest and get people together.

“The focus is very much on sharing strategies.

“It is not a therapy group, it’s more of a peer support group.”

A meeting will be held at the White Lion, Hebden Bridge, on Wednesday March 2 from noon until 2pm.

A buffet will be provided.
