Ponthafren provides a unique blend of services to address the mental health needs of its members and the citizens of Montgomeryshire in North Powys. Within the Core Funding Service, Ponthafren has developed two main centres in Montgomeryshire, at Newtown and Welshpool, with a satellite provision in Llanidloes in the form of a group which meets weekly on a Thursday. The centres provide a drop-in facility that gives people experiencing mental health difficulties opportunities to find: a ?safe place?; peer support, crisis support; and access to a wide range of learning and work related opportunities.
