People refer themselves to Pillar because they are experiencing practical, social or emotional difficulties which are having a negative impact on their mental health and well-being. The foundation of our service is empathy and compassion and we use a recovery focused approach to help people work out what is important to them as they set goals that will improve their ability to positively manage their mental health and wellbeing. Putting people at the centre, support will be either time limited or flexible dependant on individual need and this will be discussed with individuals as part of their personal support and action planning.
Volunteering benefits people by increasing feelings of self esteem, respect, motivation and well being.get in touch
Pillar offers local people an opportunity to achieve personal goals and make a meaningful contribution to their community through volunteering.
Pillar's Mental Fitness Workshops are delivered by qualified staff and aim to connect with community groups to increase knowledge, improve behaviour, change attitudes and encourage empathy around mental health. They offer an insight on how to recognise some early signs of poor mental health, strategies to manage symptoms and information on help available.
Pillar works in partnership with people with lived experience of mental illness to influence change.
Pillar provides a platform for people to share their experiences in an effort to replace prejudice and assumption with mutual understanding and respect.
Community awareness raising events can have a bigger impact when they don't focus on mental health because they can reach people who may be new to the issues of mental health. To get involved look out for Pillar's Pop Up Shops, organise a TEAM 26.2 or take part in the annual Pedal for Pillar.
