CAMAD Pathways

CAMAD Pathways Project is a drop-in service for anyone living with mental health issues - from generalized depressive conditions to anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorders to addictions.  Running on Mondays and Thursdays between 1 and 4, we have a small comfortable lounge area and communal kitchen.  Soft music plays, there's always tea and biscuits and in the kitchen informal activities including art and music.

Our principle is to offer a space where people can enjoy each other's company, confidentially, knowing that everyone who uses the service has shared similar troubles.  We are supported by local GPs and the Community Psychiatric Team visit regularly.  We don't sit around talking about mental health - in fact it's a very good-humoured set-up.  The point is there is the freedom to talk openly about what matters to you in social surroundings.  Sometimes these things can't be talked about comfortably at home, and it's so easy to become isolated in the midst of depression.  Come along.  You are welcome.  If you'd prefer to chat one-on-one first then pop in to CAMAD and we'll get the kettle on.
