Founded in 2009, Brighter Futures is a service user led and organised group supporting anyone experiencing emotional and mental distress. As a group we felt that there was limited provision in Selby District for Service Users with mental health issues. It was decided that a group of service users would be established. Crucially this was to be a group run by service users for service users. We collectively decide how the group should look and what it should do. Built upon the recovery model, the emphasis is always on enjoying ourselves with friendship being a core value. We go on numerous day trips both locally (Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks, Scarborough, Whitby, Yorkshire Sculpture Park amongst many others) and further afield (Newcastle, Edingburgh and a even a trip to London).
We aim to provide a friendly environment where you can come along and feel part of the group. Having all experienced some form of mental illness we have a pretty good idea of what you are going through. We do however recognise that we all have different experiences and will always listen without judging. We also welcome carers to our coffee and chat sessions. We offer practical support and assistance wrapped up in some much needed fun.
We organise twice weekly meetings in...
