Mission Statement

"To create a relaxed, living-room style atmosphere where individuals of any age can visit when feeling either Anxious or Depressed and ‘reach out’ to relate to individuals who have experienced similar situations”

Welcome to REACH

The Idea Behind Reach...

  • At Reach we are not professionals in white coats. We are not therapists who charge by the hour. We are not the voice inside your head. We are simply your friend!
  • As the first charity of its nature on the Isle of Man our mission is a when you’re ready we are here. Be the friend to reach out to who has experienced what you’re feeling. We are here to relate to you and are willing to do anything within our power to help. 
  • Each person involved has been touched by or have had first hand experience with anxiety and depression.
  • GPs aren’t always the answer. We know it takes time and knowing that you’re not alone is key to getting out of that dark place.
  • Reach out to someone you know who is suffering to get through it together. By knowing you’re not alone it makes you feel you can talk about it and overcome it together, easing the pain and quelling the process of overthinking.
