Talk for Health – Join A Community and Get Free, Effective, Long-term Peer Support
Register to attend a FREE Talk for Health Taster on the 17 March 2021 or join the FREE next 4-day core programme starting the 5 March 2021.
What’s the idea?
It’s important to take care of our emotional wellbeing, just as it is to take care of our bodies. One way of doing this is to connect in a truthful and empathic way with others.
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to take care of their wellbeing and support others.
What are your next steps?
Attend a Taster and/or do our in-depth 4-day Talk for Health Core Programme. Then you can:
• Come to talk for health cafes; continue talking for wellbeing and gain communication skills.
• Do a range of online group activities like breath work, art journaling and therapeutic writing.
• Follow these with ongoing groups for strong peer networks.
It’s all free and is commissioned by the NHS. You will learn and have space for:
• Honest talking – being the real you.
• Empathic listening.
• Basic counselling skills.
• How to set up and be part of an ongoing group to talk for wellbeing.

More Covid-19 and why you should be vaccinated.
A recent Teams session with Dr Danny Murphy who is a staff grade Rheumatologist & GP working across both Primary and Secondary care in the South West of England.
He explained in simple words.
‘A vaccine that is said to be 75% effective can be illustrated in this way. If you put 100 people in a room and introduce the Covid-19 virus 75 of them will not be affected by the virus but 25 will become infected. The difference is that those 25 who become ill will not suffer severe effects of the virus and probably would not die from it.’
So, make sure you get the vaccine when it is offered to you and encourage all your family, friends and neighbours to do so as well.
Use white vinegar and water [50/50] in a spray bottle as a cleaning agent around the home.
Much cheaper than proprietary brands and healthier too!
does not need to be refrigerated, it will never go off [some found in the pyramids of Egypt was still edible] honey just becomes crystallised. If it does put the jar in a pan of water and warm gently – do not boil. Local honey is best for allergies. Local honey has not been processed as the honey we buy in the shops.
