The Wise Group continues free online mental health helpline after
After the successful launch of its virtual Re-Connect CBT group therapy programme in June, The Wise Group has announced that it is to continue the service over the winter period. Re-Connect CBT will provide a suite of self-care toolkits for people struggling with their mental health during the coronavirus pandemic, particularly those who have lost their job as a result. Sessions run weekly throughout the winter period and will focus on anxiety, anger, depression and personal wellbeing. Re-Connect CBT sessions have been added in the evening and at the weekend to enable more people to access the service. Re-Connect CBT is completely free to join and is delivered by a team of experienced counsellors.
Places can be booked or a referral made online at www.thewisegroup.co.uk/re-connectcbt
