About the service

Community Links Engagement and Recovery (CLEAR) offers dynamic, creative and inspiring groups and courses to support you with your mental health and wellbeing. We collaborate with you to develop a personalised plan tracking your journey and helping you reach your goals over two years.

Your journey with CLEAR may involve learning anger management skills, building confidence, exploring your talents in our art group, making new connections, or sharing your unique skills with peers.

Our experienced and skilled team members bring their own individual strengths and passions to enrich the service, ensuring you receive personalised support tailored to your needs.

Groups and Courses

We offer an exciting range of groups and activities throughout the week and on weekends in service at Huddersfield, alongside regular groups at locations across North Kirklees. We also run a wide range of courses and workshops throughout the year on a number of wellbeing related topics.

Visit our CLEAR groups page for more detailed information.

At CLEAR, you are encouraged to share your unique skills and experiences, fostering a safe and inclusive environment where everyone can learn from one another and feel valued for their contributions. This collaborative approach promotes empowerment as you acquire new skills and strategies to help effectively manage emotions and navigate life’s challenges.

Our supportive community nurtures a sense of connection and belonging while alleviating feelings of isolation, thereby promoting overall wellness.

Engaging in group discussions, activities, or attending courses provides you with opportunities for self-reflection and personal growth, leading to increased self-awareness and resilience.

You can explore and develop a variety of skills, ranging from emotional regulation to interpersonal communication, enhancing overall well-being.

Our groups are thoughtfully designed and there’s ample opportunity to get involved through our quarterly Client Ideas Meetings, which are dedicated to planning our timetable, as well as our quarterly Client Focus Group which allows you to feedback into the service on a variety of matters.
