Thursday Self Help Group


Thursday sessions every week 10am-12pm at SODIT, SYAC building, The Wicker. No booking, no waiting list.

These meetings are face to face in the city centre. The rooms are ventilated. We need the cooperation of all members to make it as safe as possible so sessions never stop again.

The location of our new home at SODIT, above circled. Please note there is not parking that can be used, but there is on street parking available in the surrounding areas e.g. car park on Windrush Way. Please note, this is very close by to our Wednesday groups, but NOT the same building. Wednesdays is Flourish, Thursdays is SODIT. If someone is not able to walk a distance due to a disability it is fine to be dropped off within the car park, please discuss this with NPS.

" I just wanted to say that yesterday's face to face meeting was fabulous. The facilitators were very knowledgeable and helpful, as was the input from my peers.

Yesterday's focus was perfect for me and it helped me immensely. I can not thank you enough. I look forward to all future sessions." new member.
