Many people, perhaps even the majority, develop emotional or psychological difficulties at some time in their lives. 1 in 4 people will have a mental health problem within the course of their life.  We’re here to support you through such testing times and our plan for Oldham is to bring together all the different support available for people with mental health problems and develop on these networks – with a view to project planning for the future.  Using person-centred approaches, we aim to enhance the day-to-day wellbeing of people by focusing on what’s being said to us, and creating opportunities for people to get more involved in deciding what works best for each individual.Tameside Oldham and Glossop Mind is a not-for-profit organisation which promotes well-being through social engagement and creative opportunities.
