Welcome to Pathfinders
We are the friends that you have not yet met!
Confidentiality, Trust, Support and Understanding
Wirral Pathfinders is a MENTAL HEALTH SELF-HELP SUPPORT GROUP. We aim to support individuals to help themselves to learn to cope with their mental health difficulties. The Pathfinders support each other by providing a listening ear; decreasing isolation; sharing experiences and providing further information where possible. The Wirral Pathfinders motto of ‘We are the friends you have not yet met’ gives a hint to the friendly nature of the group and support available.
Pathfinders started me on a long road; to help and guide me; to feel I belong to something; to make me feel I am not alone. There are weeks I go [to Pathfinders] and feel my week has been horrendous, but someone can make me feel better with their comments.
Pathfinders DO CARE.

The Wirral Pathfinders Support Group was founded in 1992 BY people with mental health difficulties FOR people with mental health difficulties. The four founder members were in hospital together and, once discharged, found that there was no support for them within the community. They decided that they could help and support each other through their difficult times and share experiences. It decreased their isolation and their friendships blossomed.
