Good mental health is our birthright and is the foundation for a fulfilled, happy, safe and healthy life. Families where the parents are struggling with mental health issues can be unstable and not good places to bring up children.
Platform for Life offers confidential counselling and other wellbeing activities to help both parents and children build more secure, happier families. Our clients are parents (as individuals, couples), caregivers, would-be parents, teenagers and children. The counselling is free of charge for those unable to pay.
If you are struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, anger issues, alcohol and drug problems, traumatic memories or negative views about yourself, or have other psychological worries, the good news is:
Firstly, you are normal – these are normal responses to bad events.
Secondly, you don’t have to put up with it – counselling does work and that’s proven.
We can help.Read More
