Charity description

Capable Creatures Guides for the Mind logo
A Not for Profit Organisation, run by people with mental health conditions for people
with mental health conditions - providing Peer Support and Guides for the Mind Assistance Dogs to Empower and Enable them to have Choice and Control to live an Independent, fulfilling Life.

Our 'Guides for the Mind' Assistance Dog Training Programme assists people with Mental Health Conditions train
their own 'Guides for the Mind' Assistance Dogs to alleviate their disabling symptoms and remove barriers towards living an independent, fulfilling life.

Some ways a 'Guides for the Mind' Assistance Dogs support their owner is by keeping them focused in the present, reducing anxiety, managing depression, traumatic memories or suicidal thoughts, act as an alarm clock, remind them to take medication/exercise, give their owner confidence to manage social situations, as well as being a wonderful companion.

Capable Creatures also hold a monthly Peer Support Dog Walk for dog owners/lovers with Mental Health Conditions and people who support someone with a mental health condition.
It is support from people like you that makes all the difference and transforms lives.
