Community Action for Locally Managing Stress (CALMS)
CALMS mission is “To provide educative, preventative and rehabilitative programmes and services that empower individuals and organizations to recognize, reduce and manage stress effectively”.
POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER - STRESS - ANXIETY - DEPRESSION - SUICIDAL IMPULSES - FEELINGS OF HOPELESSNESS
Due to COVID 19, the demand for the services CALMS provides has increased dramatically. CALMS has seen a significant increase in stress calls and because of this the need for their services in our town has never been more valuable.
A damaging effect of COVID 19 means that much needed funds have been delayed indefinitely, therefore we are looking to raise money so these mental health programmes keep running.
Vital services and programmes provided:
- Stress management
- Relaxation therapy
- One to one support
- Social therapy
- Complementary therapies/approaches
- Listening- ear, direct
- Mental Health Support Line
