We offer support to people in the community suffering from mental illness or distress. Ours is an holistic approach to recovery and wellbeing. We welcome people through self-referral as well as referral through mental health professionals such as community psychiatric nurses, psychiatrists, occupational therapists or GPs.

Our staff include people who have had personal experience of mental ill-health. They are assisted by volunteers working in a variety of roles such as befrienders, counsellors and group support. Our base is at Tŷ Croeso in Brecon where we welcome people during our 'open door' sessions, by appointment and for a range of supportive activities. We also have outreach programmes in Talgarth, Hay-on-Wye and Crickhowell.

We provide a range of flexible  support  options, including one-to-one listening and counselling as well as a range of complementary therapies.

We offer a  creative space  with opportunities for people to use such skills as part of their recovery. Structured classes are led by experienced volunteers and project workers or in member-led groups. They are delivered in a friendly, positive and relaxing space. Classes include painting and drawing, pottery and and other crafts.

We encourage  active lifestyles  with group sessions open to anyone and a programme tailored to suit individual needs. A range of activities are offered including walking, gym, swimming, sports, and gardening.

Our  life-skills  programme encourages and supports those wishing to take back control of their lives and responsibility for their own wellbeing. We provide a variety of courses, workshops and support groups including depression support, confidence building and the management of stress and anxiety. Groups are facilitated by outside trainers, staff or volunteers or are peer-run. There are also opportunities to obtain cooking and computer skills, to attend volunteer training and to learn meditation and relaxation techniques.

We recognise how important it is for people to be able to socialise with others who have experienced mental health issues similar to their own. We offer a range of  social and cultural  groups and activities including museum and historical interest trips, camping trips, barbecues, many of which are organised by members. There is also a programme of talks and social events organised by the friends.
