Lancaster MH resources

1. SocialEase cafes

If you feel isolated. . . if socialising is hard. . . if you struggle to go out. . . if you are depressed or anxious. . .

SocialEase
A safe non-threatening space to get out from the 4 walls, to sit with a brew or delicious food from the cafes, relax, use the resources, meet others in similar situations in a calm environment.  Table cards for days when interacting with others is a step too far – just turn it to the yellow side and you won’t be disturbed.
