New art therapy group for adult carers

A new art therapy group especially for adult carers is starting at St Neots on a Monday afternoon from September.

It’s free to access and being run by Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind, the mental health charity.

If you’re a carer and you find yourself stressed, worried or dealing with other difficult emotions, then this group could be for you. No artistic ability or experience is needed; the groups are a weekly safe space to bring emotions, worries or stresses and use the creative materials to help process them. The groups will be run by an experienced Art Therapist.

Interested? Contact Kim Davies, Counselling Clinical Lead, on 01480 470480 or email  kim.davies@cpslmind.org.uk
