You’re not alone

You have made it to NewChapter1. The first thing you should know is that you’re not alone. Whether you’re here because you are in need of support, want to learn a bit about mental health or if you feel someone else is struggling WE ARE HERE. We are a new mental health team who are extremely passionate about helping people get back on their feet.

We have partnered with an all new gym called YourBody. They are the experts in getting you active and physically healthy while we work on regaining your mental health and overall confidence. Our dedicated team is always ready to talk about the big and the small things.

A common misconception about struggling with mental health issues is that you need to be in the worst place possible before to need to speak with anyone. That is not the case! Just talking to someone every now and then can really support your mental health more than you think.
