“Healing for the Heart has been a great charity to partner with… I grew up in a house where my brother has been tortured by mental health and bad thoughts and still is today. That’s an extreme case, but as Healing for the Heart says, you’ve got mental health as well as physical health and it’s very important to take care of both.
Partnering with Healing for the Heart was a way for us to give a safe and secure place for our staff to go to and have a conversation… making sure there is a mechanism for staff that supports people through whatever they are going through. It’s a fantastic service for us to be able to offer our staff.”
How We Help
“Healing for the Heart has helped me to talk and supported me with my grief process on the loss of my nephew and my dad. I have had multiple members of my family who have died with suicide or alcohol and drugs, seven in total. I could not deal with the pain and kept my self-using drugs for many years. Healing for the Heart has provided a safe space to manage my emotions and support with my grieving process.
I will be finally drug free in three weeks and have my life on track due to the support I have received at Healing for the Heart. I have learnt new coping skills and helped other people with the groups across the city and in Healing for the Heart.”
“Often people get stuck in life, held back by fear or past hurts or confusion about how to move forward. Healing for the Heart helps to ‘unstick’ people so that they can live life in all its fullness. They help people overcome fear, move beyond hurts and create clarity about how to live.”
