For a large number of us, reaching out and accessing help for the first time can often be the toughest part. Taking that first initial step to speaking, and accessing support is a scary one, however it’s also the biggest step you can take when it comes to accessing support.
More often or not, finding a friend of a close family member for a chat is a great way of sharing what’s going on, no matter how big or small. However, from time to time we understand it can be pretty daunting, and sometimes not everyone is in a position to talk to friends and family.
We’re incredibly lucky to be in a position here in store to have a variety of support avenues available through our “What’s On” board and readily available. If you’re living with Haverfordwest, or surrounding areas. Come pay us a visit. We’re open between 0730 until 1600 Monday to Friday and 0730 until 1300 on Saturdays.
We’ll be able to show you what’s going on that week, and hopefully advise you on the best time and session to drop in. If you’re traveling from afar, keep an eye on our social media flatforms to find our what’s going on specifically on a set day, or alternatively send us an e-mail and we’ll get back to you with our schedule.
If you’re not living within close range of our store, here’s some information on some other great organisation which we recommend exploring and talking to if you’re looking at accessing support.
Chatting to someone anonymous about how you’re feeling and what you’re experiencing can be a great first step. It’s also a great avenue to phone to explore local options within your hometown or local area.
