Exciting times !

[02/26/18]   CRASAC are moving in with the childrens charity Clear to a new building, and we are in need of quality preloved furniture such as comfy chairs for counselling and meetings. If you know of anything that you think might be appropriate please get in touch or send a photo to [email protected]. We also want to frame some of the childrens art work so if you have any picture frames you don't use that would be fantastic. Or, anything you think might brighten the rooms up.
Please share !
Thank you

CAN YOU HELP?
We are in desperate need of rooms to use for counselling in the Falmouth/Penryn area. Demand for our service is increasing, particularly in this location, but we are struggling to meet this need because we aren't able to access suitable rooms that are free of charge and available on a regular weekly basis. As a charity, we are unable to fund room hire because we support 150 people at any one time in Cornwall, and if we had to pay for rooms, our service could not continue. We would be very grateful if you could share this post in the hope that someone may be able to help. Thank you :)

[12/24/17]   To all clients past and present and to those of you who we haven't yet met, we wish you some peace and rest over the next few days, and beyond ! We will be back in the office on the 2 nd January. Sending love and courage X

[09/08/16]   Hello all. We are putting out a plea for quiet, private rooms in Truro and Falmouth to use for counselling. We are struggling to accommodate our clients in these areas at the moment, so if anybody knows of any suitable rooms that we could use for free, or at a very low cost, please let us know. Thank you :)

[07/18/16]   Monday morning quote from a client :-)
" I can only say that the help and compassion that I have received from my counsellor has allowed me to gain some control and perspective over my problems. The patient support that I have been given has been outstanding and I am feeling able to move forward in many areas of my life that had become intolerable. I feel so much gratitude for the time and care I have been given, thank you.

[12/14/15]   Thank you so much CRASAC for giving me my life back. My CRASAC counsellor gave me the support I had needed for so many years to be able to sort through my memories and emotions. Through patience, understanding and expertise, I was able to face my past so that I can be more at peace with myself and look forward to my future.

[11/30/15]   "I talked so much and unlocked my thoughts, the counselling was so good and it has brought it all to an end"

[10/27/15]   "your service is amazing, although it took a lot for me to open up and talk, my counsellor was fantastic and very patient, I understand more now and have learned to accept the fact that this was never my fault and that it was all down to the dedicated service you provide. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done and I'm proud to say I'm no longer afraid, no longer ashamed, I am a survivor"

[10/26/15]   "Thank you for listening to me and generally making it safe to open boxes in my head. Even if I never had the words to say what was in them they are clearer now and less bothersome......I generally smile now with less tears. " client quote

[10/20/15]   "History, despite its wrenching pain cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage need not be lived again"-client quote

First one ! "Try the CRASAC experience and begin your flight to freedom"

The Invictus Trust

We have been emailed about an opportunity within a very high profile mental health documentary. Matchlight are currently making a documentary about bipolar disorder for BBC 1 that will be broadcast in January 2016.

They are currently looking for a person or a family who are struggling to get either themselves or a loved one diagnosed with bipolar or receive the treatment/medication/support they need.

They are looking to hear from people who are desperate to try and get help for behaviour they believe is bipolar, and are currently trying to attain a diagnosis.

They are also looking to hear from those who have received a bipolar diagnosis but feel they are fighting for adequate support with their illness including accessing the services that they believe they require. These could be people who have graduated from children's services and have fallen through the gaps of the adult sector, people who have recently been diagnosed with bipolar after having previously been diagnosed with another mental illness or anybody else who currently feels they are struggling for correct diagnosis and treatment.

If you would potentially be willing to tell your story as part of a documentary, please could you email Alex on [email protected] with a brief description of the current ongoing situation that you or your loved one is facing. (Apologies in advance if it takes some time for Alex to reply but all emails will be read and considered.)
