Support for Adults


There may be a time in everyone’s life when they feel sad, depressed or suffering with low mood. At such times they might feel that they cannot cope. When people feel like this it is important that they can talk to someone and seek help.

We have also provided you with here with numbers that may help you in more urgent situations - Crisis Signposting 

We teach the children at Rawdon St. Peter's that it is OK to ask for help. If we help children to grow up thinking this way, then we hope that they will be more likely to access help they may need as adults.

If you feel like this, or if you are concerned for someone else, here are some local contacts which might be useful:
