The board of trustees at Portadown Wellness Centre are delighted to announce that our new Wellness Centre has opened on 2nd September 2019 at our premises at Tavanagh Industrial Estate, 130 Church Street, Portadown.
The Portadown Wellness Centre will provide support and empowerment for both men and women of the local community who may be recovering from some mental ill health, addiction, physical illness or are just feeling a little lonely or isolated.
It will do this in a holistic way by offering a variety of services that include practical activities, social events, listening spaces and talks and presentations on well-being.
Among the start up activities in the Centre will be classes in woodwork, arts and crafts, physical exercise including a walking group, furniture restoration and upholstery and yoga.
In the longer term it is hoped that the Centre will also be able to offer classes in pottery, gardening and horticulture, woodcarving and cookery and baking.
An important part of the work of this new project will be to address the issue of the stigma associated with mental ill health. To this end the Centre will offer sessions on topics such as depression, anxiety, addiction, grief and low self-esteem. It will help those who need to talk about themselves and their lives by providing a safe and confidential listening service.
Our listening service is available from Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 12.00pm and is staffed by experienced listening facilitators.
If you know of anybody who might benefit from attending our Centre, please feel free to forward our details.
