A Shetland-wide, free and confidential support service for people who are supporting, caring for, or living with someone who is struggling in terms of their mental health.
The Wellness Together Programme (WTP) is a short-term service of around 6-8 weeks and is open to anyone aged 18 and over, is free and confidential. The person that you are supporting does not need to have a diagnosis.
The Wellness Together Programme is made up of three strands:
- Practical advice: Sessions will be run on a one-to-one basis.
- Self awareness: Recognising the supporters own mental wellbeing, making sure they have enough resilience of their own to cope with looking after someone else.
- Signposting: To help identify what their needs are and who best to support them with these once the Wellness Together Programme is completed.
What can you expect from us?
