Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days. Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you”re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.

Some people think depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They’re wrong – it is a real illness with real symptoms. Depression isn’t a sign of weakness or something you can “snap out of” by “pulling yourself together”.

We recommend the follow ing courses on our events for help with depression:

  • Mindfulness
  • Positive Psychology
  • Coping With Change
  • understanding CBT
  • Relaxation and Sleep Management


Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear that can be mild or severe.

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life – for example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam, or having a medical test or job interview. During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal.

However, some people find it hard to control their worries. Their feelings of anxiety ore more constant and can often affect their daily lives.:

Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions, including:

  • Panic Disorder
  • Phobias – such as Agorap hobia or Claustrophobia
  • Post-trauma tic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia)

Your Questions

What if I can't afford to sign up for membership but need your services?

We know that in some cases the membership fee can be a tough thing to pay for, however, we can support you in getting a carers assessment in order to afford the services you need from us.

Do I need a membership to use any of your services you provide?

Membership is only required for specific services we provide, see the membership page *Link membership page* for more details on what is included and what is not. You can still make use of our open services such as SWiSH and Working for Carers.

Can I have a taster of the membership services?

Yes! We allow carers to have a trial period of our membership services before we require them to fully sign up and become paying members. We find it is always best to know what you’re spending your money on.

Are you run by the council?

Though the name suggests, we are not run by the council and operate independently as a charity within Harrow. We operate through the funding generated by generous donations and membership payments.
