Penumbra Nova Project
The aim is to help people who are recovering from a mental health problem to re-connect with people and resources in their community by accessing ordinary activities such as further education, sports, clubs, volunteering, and employment. People who access the service can be experiencing mild, medium or severe mental health problems and require support to help them identify and overcome the difficulties that stand in the way of them becoming well and living a full, meaningful life.
Group activities are agreed by the people who use the service. They tell Penumbra what is important to them. Groups have been set up by request.
