Today was a very productive meeting with lots of good ideas floating around. Some people were struggling with the winter and dark mornings and dealing with a lack of energy at this time of the year. It can also be a real challenge for people to get out of bed and to function. Listening to other people’s experiences of this issue helped people to realise that they were not alone and can get through this hard time.
We reflected on the wonderful gifts we have received from people whether it be a physical gift or a metaphorical one. Some people felt the best gifts they received where unconditional love from friends/family/pets or a physical gift that a lot of thought had been put into.
We looked at what we could put in a report on the event we held 2 weeks ago. A lot of people came up with good ideas, with a lot focussing on the myths of suicide.
Finally we discussed how more we can promote the group and the cost of it.
