We believe that no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone – and blogs, real stories from real people, can play a part in achieving this.
Reading a blog by someone going through a familiar experience can have a big impact. And reading or watching a piece about an experience we didn’t know about can open up our eyes, give us a unique insight and help us learn.
We want to hear from you and would love for people to be involved in what we do. We are running focus groups and you are warmly invited to join! The aim of these informal groups is to develop new ideas, strengthen existing ones and foster a sense of pride in supporting Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind. Check out the following focus groups we have coming up.
I was desperately unhappy in my job. It was stressful, I worked long hours and wasn’t supported by my boss, despite my frequent requests for help. I didn’t feel as though I had the confidence or strength to make any changes; I simply accepted that this was the way it was always going to be. In addition to this, my Mum became ill and rightly or wrongly, I felt obliged to take care of her - my own needs no longer mattered.
