We are open!
Although our physical doors are closed, The Door's support services are still open.
We all deal with situations in a variety of ways and being in lockdown is no different , these resources have been put together by The Door Team to help us get through lockdown together. So whether you need something to make you laugh, chill out or understand your feelings have a look at what the team has to offer below. There's even useful stuff for parents too!
And of course you can always get in touch with the team if you would like further support or more information on any of the topics covered. Call the office on 01453 756745 (Mon-Fri, 9-5) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Download, read through and complete these booklets to help you understand and start to manage your feelings. You might want to work through them with someone in your family or over video chat with a friend to help you out. Make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to do the exercises and remember you don't have to do everything all at once either.
