Tuesday 09 December 201404:04PM

The women in the current support group at Gateshead recently reflected on their progress since the group formed just over 6 months ago. They have built an enormous amount of trust in one another and now regularly support one another by sharing their personal feelings and experiences. Confidence is growing and close friendships are forming as the women are trying new activities together. Here are some comments they have made:

 

“I get out a lot more; able to talk to people and socialise; not as reclusive as I have been in recent years……Made friends after losing so many due to mental health; have started enjoying coming out more.”

 

“I now have a social life and friends I can relax with, who I trust…..I now have real friends.”
