Our next introductory course will be starting on Wednesday 8th January 2020.  ‘Being There’ is an introduction to listening and counselling skills.  It is for anyone wishing to develop their listening and communication skills, for those in any kind of helping relationship, and for those interested in training as a counsellor. If any of these are you, then you would be welcome to join us in the New year.  For more details and a booking form: https://network.org.uk/training/being-there/

Thank you!

A huge thanks to the staff and shoppers at Asda Filton for supporting Network. We had a stand in the foyer during Mental Health Awareness Week 2019, and raised a much needed £335.15 to support mental health in our community.

From 13-19 May we will be celebrating positive mental health, and thinking about how we think and feel about our bodies. Body issue images can affect us at any age, so take a look at these tips for self-care.
