CURRENT PROJECTS

Mental Health Project

Mental Health Project funded by Bank of Scotland Foundation offers support for Eastern European community with particular focus on Polish ethnic minority, who struggle with challenges and barriers of living abroad that prevents them from finding work, going to school or fulfil their potential.

The project will provide beneficiaries with one-to-one support and family support if necessary. Counselling will be provided in person as well as over the phone and skype, whenever clients are not able to visit due to health issues, disabilities, or financial struggles.

 

Counselling falls under the umbrella term `talking therapies' and allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings they encounter in a safe, confidential environment. In general it is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.

A counsellor encourages clients to talk about what's bothering them in order to uncover any root causes and identify specific ways of thinking. This is especially important when dealing with people who feel isolated in the foreign country they live. The counsellor then looks to create a plan of action to either help them reconcile their issues or help them to find ways of coping.
