Feedback from previous cohorts:

the course gave me useful strategies for coping with mental health”

“it helped hearing other people’s stories and how even though we had different circumstances, we still helped and supported each other”

“I thought it was facilitated extremely well”

I liked the fact that the group was online, because I was in the safety of my own environment, it was less anxiety provoking”

“it made me feel that I wasn’t alone. I now know that there are other people in the same boat”

“I was really in a bad place and now I’m out of that place, I’ve made friends and learnt a lot of things about my mental health, and learnt about other people’s mental health”

“I really can’t stress what a difference to my life you and Lucy have made… I can’t thank you enough.”
