Unmasked Mental Health Support Groups are for anyone who is experiencing emotional distress. People are free to talk about their own mental health - or not: the support group gives space to make that choice. The groups are informal and relaxed. They are 'peer support' groups (meaning people get support from each other), not therapy groups, although, for some, they may have a therapeutic benefit. All groups are led by a facilitator or co-facilitators whose role is to encourage the group to develop and flourish in a safe, non-judgemental and inclusive way.
These groups originally started in Halifax but we aim to spread the across the whole of the UK.
