Groups at Mind in Furness
Mens Group

The Men’s Group is held on Tuesday afternoons and is facilitated by Support Worker Mike. In addition to the regular attendees we have a number of men who have joined the group whenever they wish to.

The group has welcomed a few guest facilitators, they have generally comprised of students on placement or volunteers. Upcoming topics are now chosen by the group and posted on the Men’s Group notice board in advance, so members can check ahead which sessions will be of particular interest.

Some subjects may warrant more than one session, or additional information can be passed on to members. Some themes will continue to be pertinent and as such repeated, such as: assertiveness, confidence-building, self-esteem, relating to professionals/statutory services, current research/information, lifestyle and health-related issues. In future we would like to develop sessions in line with the issues that are identified as points on the Recovery Star.

Women's Group

The women’s group at Mind in Furness meet weekly on a Wednesday morning. The sessions are well attended and the group offers a safe, confidential environment.

We have fun in the group doing activities with arts and craft and poetry as well as offering therapeutic activities where we will discuss confidence building and self-esteem topics, relaxation sessions, going out to local art exhibitions or just meeting for a coffee are also some of the activities we enjoy in the group.
