What we're about

Hello! This is a group especially set up for people in their 20's/30's who are living with mental health conditions. As a person who struggles with various mental health issues on a daily basis, I understand more than anything how strenuous it can be to maintain a healthy, fulfilling life, including socially! My group aims to get people together and hopefully bring them out of their shell. We are all unique in our own ways and deserve the same treatment, recognition and opportunities as anyone else! No more feeling alone and out of touch with the outside world!! Let us unite and prove to ourselves that we can do anything if we put our beautiful minds to it :-) Anyone is welcome to join if they are:

aged between 20 and 40
have one or more mental health conditions
is shy, socially awkward and/or struggles to make friends
is feeling lost and isolated
is fed up with being excluded from the riches of reality

Let's stop allowing life to pass us by and start getting out and about and doing the things we have always wanted to do!

I am always happy for new suggestions and ideas.

I look forward to meeting and mingling with you lovely people!

A step into the fashion industry

The Blandford Fashion Museum

Let's take a look at the history of our clothing range and learn about how fashion and style has evolved over time. This really does look interesting! There is also a tearoom so we can have a cuppa and some scones afterwards ;-) it's only a fiver to get in :) http://blandfordfashionmuseum.co.uk/home/ For those who are travelling by public transport, we will meet at Poole bus station 10:45 and hop onto the 10:50 X8 bus. It takes 38 minutes to arrive at our destination. Those who are driving can meet us there.

Monthly counselling/talk therapy

Hotel Miramar

I have decided to host a group "counselling" session once a month to give us all a chance to talk about mental health (and anything else which may be playing on our minds) this will be on a Sunday as I am aware some members work during the week and this will probably be the most suitable day to hold this meeting. I have picked a hotel bar/terrace as the setting as it should hopefully be quiet and have a relaxed atmosphere. At the same time we can have a bite to eat and a coffee/tea - the menu does look quite appetising!! I attach a link: https://miramar-bournemouth.com/dine/ocean-bar-terrace/ This place will also have some nice sea views :)

Bournemouth Beer Festival
