Sikh community group launching mental health scheme after increase in sufferers seeking help

A community organisation is launching a mental health scheme due to a rise in sufferers seeking its help.

The Sikh Community Care Project is raising money for workshop sessions, which will support affected people and their families.

Jasbir Sanger, the groups project manager, said: More and more people are coming in with depression and a lot of [other] mental health conditions and stress-related conditions.

The numbers have risen over the past two years and are getting higher and higher. More people are at least acknowledging it.

But the organisation, based in Argyle Road, Ilford, has also been visited by people whose families will not accept that they have mental health conditions.

One such visitor was a young woman with bipolar disorder, whose family did not want to acknowledge her illness.

Mrs Sanger said: They got her married and now it is affecting her married life, because the family dont understand what is wrong with her.

That is why we thought it was important to do this now; we are trying to get people to understand that support is out there so [they] dont let it get worse.

As well as attending the workshops, people will be able to visit outside them to receive support.

The organisation, which began in 1992, primarily supports elderly and disabled people, women and young people.

It provides help in areas such as health and crime and organises a range of projects and self-help programmes.

The group is hosting a charity dinner and dance tomorrow to kick off fundraising for the project.

It will take place at the City Pavilion in Collier Row Road, Romford, from 7pm to 12am.

For more information on the Sikh Community Care Project or its new scheme, email Mrs Sanger on sccpredbridge@yahoo.co.uk or call 020 8554 3377.

    • Is this the same book? : https://archive.org/details/cunninghamshisto00cunnuoft
    • why is deep sidhu being vaunted as the one who climbed and placed the flag when we saw two different individuals put two different flags up , one elder gursikh and a young lad with a kesari parna? who is this guy his face gives me the creeps ... Police were given anything goes instructions but didn't expect that shooting an unarmed guy in the head whilst he drove by would result in people pushing back against it. it is also clear over 11 police ID guys sabotaged tractors smashed windscreens and windows and also did the bus damage they were were caught and handed in to police comissioner . Many others got away.
    • Yeah, the Indian flag was not touched in any sort of way. They put the Nishan Sahib on a pole in front of the Fort and on some domes. Now, we have the Indian media trying to say it was a Khalistani flag like these dimwits never seen a Nishan Sahib towering in  gurdwaras across the world. Furthermore, these Indian nationalists are showing their true colors all on Twitter!  
    • 1. Can you share the source of this reading? So we can all get some more context and verify the validity of this reading material please?   2. Raaj isn't really preached in the teaching of the Gurus. If so, I'm sure the 10 Guru's would've clearly made this apparent in their teachings and would have accomplished this objective themselves.    Sri Guru Granth Sahib - Ang: 534 (Guru Arjan Dev Ji): Raaj Na Chahou Mukat Na Chahou Man Preet Charan Kamalare. (I do not seek power and I do not seek liberation. My mind is in love with your lotus feet)   Sri Dasam Granth Sahib - Ang: 57 (Bachitar Naatak):   Ham Ih Kaaj Jagat Mo Aae. Dharam Heth Gurdev Patthai. (I have set foot on this Earth for this one reason; to propogate righteousness)   Jahaan Tahaan Tum Dharam Bithaaro. DushT Dokheean Pakarr Pachharro. (The Lord has asked me to spread Dharam and vanquish tyrants and evil-minded individuals)   I could reference countless other tuk's from Gurbaani but i'm sure these two suffice.   Akali Baba Phoola Singh Ji was walking in the steps of the teachings of the Gurus; on a mission to eliminate the enemy; in this case being the British who tried ever so hard to eliminate our teachings by performing disgusting acts such as but not limited to: Creating the SGPC Spreading propaganda of the Khalsa Issuing 'shoot on-sight' orders to kill Singhs Spreading propaganda on our scriptures Sending in paid Sikhs to spread nonsence and create divisions Polluting the Khandeh Di Pahul maryada by introducing other cults to participate Removing the Nihang Singhs from the Akaal Bunga Sahib aka Akaal Takhat Sahib and therefore the whole Jathedaari system that has been in place since the time of the Gurus.
