“We want our community to feel loved and that they don’t need to be alone at all”
The organisation aims to increase awareness of mental health and prevent suicide by providing support, safety and comfort. They provide a 24/7 service and run support groups for men, women and children.
The Bearded Fishermen support groups and drop-ins are set to increase, providing continued comfort after counselling periods have ended. The 24-hour suicide prevention service allows anyone to receive support via telephone or in person where necessary, alleviating pressure on medical services.
