Lunch Club at the drop-in centre


"By coming here people learn about eachother and learn how to tolerate each others' differences. People make friends when they come here and feel more accepted and understood. People are helped by knowing each others problems and it makes them feel less lonely. People with mental health problems can feel like victims in the outside world, they get a different reaction, but this does not happen at the drop-in centre. When people come here they begin to feel differently and begin to recognise their problems and start to take responsibility for themselves."
