 Celebrating members Heart

 

In our Lived Experience side of the forum this month we are celebrating @EOR  for offering honest and supportive advice to forums members during difficult periods, encouraging them to stay connected and kind to themselves.

 

“I find it takes the edge off to chat or just tell someone. But, No one person knows you better than you. Try hold it together. So what if we misfire or lose the plot sometimes... if we're not hurting anyone... Be kind to yaself.”

 

In our Carers forum we are celebrating @Carer101 for always replying with thoughtful advice, and letting other members know they understand what they are going through and using their own experience as a way to help when they can here.

Our March event was our first ever group mindfulness session, co-hosted by @SmilingMind  The links will remain on the forums so please go back and read through, as it was a great introduction to meditation!

Quote's of the month

 

Lived Experience Forum: 

“Perhaps it's a good reminder that wherever possible we shouldn't suffer in silence - but share our pain, experience, and successes - in order to help each other navigate the present moment and whatever may lie ahead.”

said by @Got_the_tshirt  in Something’s Not Right

 

 

Carers Forum: 

“I am glad you found us here, because being able to speak out about what you, personally, are going through is so important to your own mental health.  It is important to know you are not alone in the experiences.”
