A NEW group to support people with mental health issues has been set up in Burnham.

The Way4ward Club has been set up by coordinators who have experience in the mental health service, and is to offer a community-based range of activities.

The peer group has the support of national mental health charity Rethink, and will have people referred to them at the Bay Centre.

The group’s main aim is to ensure that people suffering from mental health problems aren’t isolated in the community, and to support them until they can live with support only from friends and family.
