Support Group Updates
Caring for someone with Mental Health issues
We held a consultation in conjunction with RAMH on Tuesday 27th June 2017 with Carers re setting up a support group of carers or people with a mental health illness. The result of the Consultation was that Carers would like both daytime and evening meetings. The agreed times for these are as follows:
Venue – Renfrewshire Carers Centre
Evening - Tuesday 19th September 6.00pm – 8.00pm (will be held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month)
Daytime - Tuesday 26th September 1.00pm – 3.00pm (will be held on the 4th Tuesday of every month)
The groups will be very similar to our other support groups and will look at support for carers looking after their own health and wellbeing, providing information, inviting speakers and allowing some time out from caring. The groups will be supported by Margaret our Group Worker and Reuben from RAMH. If you would like further information please contact us.
The Drama Group are ow up and running and are currently busy rehearsing for their first production - a comdey written by Campbell Fraser and our Carers.
The play shall be performed at the Wynd Centre on Thursday 16th November 2017. Admission is FREE and refreshments are available.
Renfrewshire Carers Centre Drama Group is meeting on every Tuesday evening 7.30 - 8.30pm.
