On Thursday 10th October we marked World Mental Health Day 2019 with a well-attended coffee morning held in the Pod. It was great to see so many new and familiar faces coming together to share their experiences and, of course, enjoy some lovely cakes!
However, this event was not a one-off. In fact, the Pod plays host to a weekly ‘Let’s Talk’ mental health drop-in session held every Thursday at 10am until 1pm. A qualified counsellor is on hand if extra support is needed, but residents are welcome to make the most of the comfortable seating, a steady stream of tea and coffee, and an excellent opportunity to connect with others in their community who may be facing similar barriers.
‘Let’s Talk’ has its own Facebook page linked here: https://www.facebook.com/letstalkholyhead/.
