Every week we offer Mental Health & Sucide support to those that need it most ...
WHAT WE DO
Main areas of our focus
Helping those with mental health issues
We are a mental health and suicide peer support group offering support through real life lived experiences. We are not are qualified professionals so do not advice or diagnose illnesses.
Helping in the prevention of self harm and suicide
Some people feel they have no alternative and can have suicidal tendencies. We at Taketen can offer advice from first hand experiences and try to get everyone to see the light in the darkness.
Fall out relief
Mental health issues can not only impact the lives of those suffering but also those around them. We try to help everyone understand and overcome their issues so that they can live and lead a happy life whilst supporting others.
Helping through education
The taketen team have undertaken a variety of relevant courses in order to ensure we can offer the best support to our people BUT we don't need them to know that your value and you are worth so much more than you believe...
We hold 2 weekly groups for children and young adults and a highly successful adult only group to help support everyone.
With plans for many more!
VOLUNTEERS to date
We have a wonderful team of volunteers dedicated to helping as many people as possible overcome the struggles they face dealing with mental health issues.
OF LIVES HELPED
Wether it's a ten minute chat over the phone, advice online, a one time meet and greet or a regular visitor to our weekly groups we try to touch as many lives as possible. No problem too small.
