A Life Links Client

“The CRS course I participated in was extremely well delivered by the recovery workers and I have benefited hugely.”

Managing Anxiety Group CRS Attendee

‘Life Links has been a huge help to me personally, regarding my mental health issues. Not only have they helped me to exceed my initial goal, but have strongly helped me to gain confidence and engage with others. Not only this but they have given me valuable and vital information to help me sustain this. Also, they have been very caring and understanding from day one. In particular Brooke and Izabela who are absolutely amazing. I hope to attend several of their peer group classes as a continuation of the course. I’m certain that anyone who uses this service will be as pleased as I am. Keep up the good work and big thanks again’

Jason - Managing Low Mood Course

“I can’t speak highly enough of the Life Links safety plan. After the crisis team have worked with someone we support, I always follow up with the Life Links one”

A Suicide Prevention Workshop Attendee

“The workshop we had last week connecting to nature was so good and the group seemed to really get a lot from it”.
