Northside provides opportunity for people living with server mental illness to attend various social activities once a week through One Door Mental Health organisation. This allows the men’s group to increase social interaction, enhance communication and build relationships. While allowing carers to take a break from their caring responsibilities and feeling assured their loved ones are in engaging in meaningful activities.
‘I want to thank you for your work with my son this year. Going to your group has been the highlight of his life. He calls it the “Men’s Group”! He looks forward to going and has a smile on his face he returns which is something you do not often see on his face. The outings you take them on are his only topic of conversation. The casual contact with his peers under your expert guidance has not only helped him but me too. I hope your good work continues as it is helping so much in people’s lives. Thank you!’
