Eastleigh Womens Wellbeing Group

Open to: People with Mental Illness

Eastleigh

Fortnightly on a Thursday at 3.30pm to 5.00pm.

Group Coordinator: Vicky Mould

We are a peer support group for women experiencing mental health issues, and we welcome adults of all ages, including those residing in Hampshire and the neighbouring counties. You don't need a formal or specific diagnosis to attend, and our group may benefit you if you'd like a safe place to talk, feel less alone with your struggles, make social connections, learn from others, develop your confidence and self-esteem. Sometimes, we focus on a specific life area, such as self-care or relationships, and occasionally we have speakers in the group, yet it's more about being yourself in the group and sharing how things are for you.
We offer an environment where you can feel genuinely heard, understood, valued and accepted, and you can attend the group for as long as you wish.
We understand that it can feel scary coming into the group for the first time, yet we're here for you, and say it's worth giving it a try. If you'd like to attend the group, please contact our Group Coordinator, Vicky Mould.

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”
