Thriving Communities have teamed up with You’re Never Alone – a men’s mental health and wellbeing support group operating in the Blaenau Gwent area. Using some of the National Lottery Award they received earlier this year, Thriving Communities are providing the group with 3 wellbeing workshops on the following themes and dates:
- Self-love for men – 21st March 2023
- Beating anxiety and depression – 18th April 2023
- The power of forgiveness – 23rd May 2023.
The feedback received so far has been incredible, including:
Most helpful was learning that self-love is acceptable. Enjoyed joining in. (Self-love)
Morning Esther, just wanted to thank you for such a positive and uplifting class last night. Really, really helped. Good thoughts going to sleep and good thoughts this morning! Thanks so much you’ve really made a difference. (Self-love)
Great session! (Anxiety & Depression)
Really good group participation. Would love more of this. (Anxiety & Depression)
Putting on these events has also helped attract new members to the group for leader Jordan Paull.
Subject to receiving further funding we’re looking to roll out even more of these events in future.
