To mark Mental Health Awareness Week and Dying Matters Week 13 - 17 May 2019
Everyone goes through a difficult time in their lives. This event is designed to give you the opportunity to hear from people who have been through it and come out the other side.
There will be speakers talking about their own experieneces, free taster sessions from the Recovery College and creative workshops to show you how to use writing as a therapeutic tool, or to help you gain confidence talking to others about your own story.
