A SOUTHAMPTON based charity is offering help to those who are struggling with mental health issues.

Creative Options, a community-led charity, is re-launching its 12-week course called SPACE, aimed at preventing suicide and self-harm.

Organisers will carry out face-to-face activities to assist participants in managing their emotions, and additional support will be available online.

The resources published online offer a range of courses designed to help improve mental wellbeing. 

The re-launch of the SPACE programme will start on Sunday, May 8 at 2pm at the Southampton Water Activities Centre. 

The sessions will be led by a well-being mentor and the founder of Compassionate Cuppa, Ling Salter. 

The charity's goal is to create a safe space where people can speak openly without fear of being judged.

Anyone interested in learning more about how the system works is welcome to attend.

The SPACE programme has a £10 contributory fee for participants.
