Are you concerned about associating with people affected by mental health issues?

Mental illness is not contagious.

Group 61 has a duty of care to ensure volunteers are not put at risk of violence, or of being manipulated or inconvenienced. We have never had a problem with violence and we have procedures that prevent that happening. The training course ensures volunteers are prepared to deal with any unusual situation that may arise.

People with mental health issues need to be understood and valued.
