Today we had our most attended group so far. It was nice to see people returning who had not been able to attend for a while. We looked at the ways people expressed their feelings/emotions and how some found it easier to write down how they feel in poems, or by using art materials. A couple of group members have come up with the idea of making music with the poems.
We looked at how hard it can be for people who have experienced trauma to be able to function while having to live with the mental scars from years of abuse. The group looked at recovery stories which inspired them and was also thought-provoking for them with their own experiences.
Next week we will have June Grant from Action on Depression as our guest.
