Free Event: Mental Health Discussion Group
Monday September 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A safe space for people to express, vent and share their fears, worries and concerns about the current political climate in the UK and globally and the impact it has on our collective psyche – and maybe even come up with some constructive ways of coping, convened by licensed therapist Hal M.
Both in the course of his practice and in discussion with friends, Hal has noted that political anxieties – such as Trump, Brexit, Boris Johnson, racism, elitism, sexism, climate catastrophe etc – are being increasingly cited as a cause of considerable distress. In response, he wanted to create a supportive environment to discuss these issues, emphasising the impact the current political climate has on our collective psyche and on our emotional wellbeing. This discussion group aims to fight the isolation often induced by this anxiety and to bring people together to realise that they’re not alone with their fears, insecurities and anger. It also hopes to encourage people to find ways to use their anger and turn it into something constructive – and maybe start a positive political change too.
Spaces are free, but it’d be helpful if you could RSVP below so we can get an idea of numbers – thanks for your help.
