Focus on men's mental health at Heart Wood

Congratulations to Heart Wood, a charity set up by Chip Ponsford from Hexham, on receiving funding from the National Lottery. Heart Wood was set up to improve men’s mental health through woodland-based counselling and therapy. They plan to use the money to run two eco therapy groups a week and train more therapists to offer more sessions. Currently sessions are held for men aged over 25 in Slaley and for 18-25 year olds in Ponteland. 

I am sure this funding will make a huge difference to the work Heart Wood is able to do in improving the mental health of men in our local area. If you feel that the sessions offered by Heart Wood might be helpful to you, please find out more by visiting their website here-
