It is with great sadness that Wirral Pathfinders have to announce the death of our founder member, Peter Spindler.
For thirty years, Peter was the first contact for many Pathfinders. His constant aim was to help anyone struggling with their mental health.
We owe so much to Peter. He was kind, compassionate, patient, gentle and non-judgemental.
Wirral Pathfinder's Members will remember him always with love and deep gratitude.

Wirral Pathfinders is a MENTAL HEALTH SELF-HELP SUPPORT GROUP. Our aim is to support individuals in helping themselves and to learn to cope with their mental health difficulties. At Pathfinders we 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
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER
Confidentiality, Trust, Support and Understanding
All of our groups strictly adhere to our main rule which is regarding CONFIDENTIALITY.
Anything that is shared within the support group environments, by our members, should not be discussed with anyone outside of the group, or even with absent group members.
This rule is for the safety of all members and helps to ensure that it is an environment which enables and encourages people to share their personal experiences and stories without fear.
All other Pathfinders guidelines are listed in your welcome booklet, can be downloaded from this website or are available upon request. What Should I Expect?
Your enquiry will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.
If you do decide to come to a meeting, you will be met by a member who will have an introductory chat with you. They will also accompany you to your first group meeting, so you will not feel alone and anxious. Please remember we have all taken these first tentative steps to a group meeting, and for all of us it has been truly liberating to be amongst people who genuinely understand.
Our Self Help Group will help you to:
Pathfinders helped me find direction and support when I first moved to the Wirral. I felt very emotionally isolated, confused and adrift throughout this change in my life ..... I always knew that if I needed to talk there was a kindly, local group of like minded souls willing to listen and accept me, no matter how I felt.
At a time when I felt like my life had completely fallen apart and I had no one to turn, Pathfinders became my family and helped to support me and lift me when I though there was no hope at all.
I started out needing the group for support. Everything in the world was dark and I couldn't see any chinks of light. Pathfinders helped me through my darkest times. Now things have improved, I have stayed to help others. I'm paying the help and support forward to the next people who need us. I hate to see others struggling how I once did, and will do all I can as I know what it is like to feel that way.
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.
