Here at Hertfordshire Mind Network we have seen first hand the impact Covid-19 has had on people's mental health. We have been inundated with people wanting to access our counselling service over the last 12 months and our Counselling team have delivered sessions virtually and, where restrictions permit, face to face.

The pandemic has also resulted in people struggling to make ends meet financially. For some job losses, furlough and difficulty getting onto the employment ladder has meant that money has been tight. Whilst our counselling service is low cost and has reduced rates for people on benefits, or low incomes, we still have a number of clients who would greatly benefit from counselling, but are unable to afford it.

We are launching this appeal to raise £2,000 which would help us provide 10 counselling assessments and 80 counselling sessions to people across Hertfordshire aged 16+. Our short term counselling sessions are delivered by experienced and placement counsellors who use a client-centred based approach.

How you can support our appeal:
