We meet fortnightly on a Tuesday from 5.30 pm - 7.00 pm.

Group Coordinator: Vicky Mould

You're very welcome to enquire about this group and arrange a 30-minute initial discussion, yet please note that spaces are limited.

Our virtual/online support group is for women impacted by mental health issues, such as prolonged low mood/depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD or BPD/EUPD (and associated loneliness or social isolation, low self-confidence and self-esteem).

But you don't need a formal mental health diagnosis to join - it's more important that you could benefit from the group.

We can offer a welcoming, non-judgemental and understanding space to connect with and learn from others and receive and give support.

As we meet online - using Whereby Video, you'll need the following:

● Access to a private room or space for the duration of each meeting
● To adhere to the group rules around confidentiality
● A mobile phone, tablet or computer/laptop with a camera and microphone installed
● A good internet connection and private WiFi connection
● A personal/private email address.

Meetings take place fortnightly on Tuesdays, 5.30 pm - 7.00 pm.

The Group Coordinator will email the details you need to access a scheduled group meeting.

To enquire about the group, please email Vicky via eastleighwomenswellbeing@gmail.com.

Who runs this group.

“I have been regularly attending the group for two years, and I have found the peer support from the group the most helpful for me - I am a firm believer in the saying that a problem shared is a problem halved. The group is small at present but very friendly, and some people travel long distances to come. I admit the first meeting was a bit daunting, but I was told that I could just listen if I did not want to share. During the meetings, we often spend some time talking about how we are doing and giving support to each other. There have been a couple of occasions when we’ve socialised outside of the group, such as seeing Ruby Wax perform”
