Mind Llanelli

This Mind group is affiliated to the National Mind, and offers two distinct services: a Befriending Service, and a Welcome Centre. Both benefit people with mental health difficulties and promote their recovery. More than 200 people are assisted with one-to-one and group support each year.

A £4,000 contribution was made in February 2015 towards the charity setting up a self-harm support group which aims to benefit around 20 people in the first year. There had been a gap in service provision for people who self-injure in Carmarthenshire, and a lack of education and information available. The group will explore why people self-harm, recognise triggers and patterns and offer strategies, with the aim of reducing and stopping the practice.
