Event description

Description

Please note: This is an 8 week course, by signing up to week one you are also commiting to attending the consecutive sessions.



Lifelink are working with facilitators from the Scottish Recovery Network's Write to Recovery project to offer an 8 week course in writing to aid recovery.

Write to Recovery has been designed by the Scottish Recovery Network to support people affected by mental health problems on their recovery journeys.

Nobody but you has the right to define you. The words that define you have power and magic. As a hero you overcome severe challenges. In this way your story is transformed into one of triumph, inspiring and encouraging others.

What should I expect?

8 therapeutic writing workshops for anyone who has ever experienced some sort of distress, emotional difficulty or mental ill-health. These facilitated sessions will take on a new theme each week, set by the facilitators, and participants will be guided to learn a variety of techniques that will inspire them to write their own stories and experiences. The therapeutic benefits of putting pen to paper are enormous and provide an opportunity for participants to view their journey in a different light.

Get together with others in a supportive environment which will enable you to engage with your create energies to tell your story, in your way, to whom you want. There will be no pressure to read out what you've written and no one will be watching over your shoulder while you write. This group is very much participant led and the level of sharing will depend completely on individual preference.

No writing experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome to attend no matter their level of literacy.
