Lessons for the Write Mind

Mental Health Awareness Week
Writing Webinar
led by Amanda Epe, Jo Robinson, and Anita Kelly
The past week with kindness as a theme for mental health awareness week, my colleagues and I began the week with free delivery of writing for wellbeing webinar, as a therapy to cope with the lockdown.

An intimate group of 13 participants joined the webinar to reflect and write about their resilience in overcoming struggles in the past, delivered by Mental Health Trainer Anita Kelly. Writing workshop facilitator Jo Robinson talked about lockdown learning, what have people learned about themselves, looking at the positives, and how they have been kind to themselves prompting the writing task.

I closed the session with goal setting, looking forward to a bright future encouraging attendees to write creative, personal, or professional goals to improve themselves.

From our workshop findings and current news, there appears to be a trend in people appreciating nature, being active, and a surge in arts and creativity.
Sharing interests also can inspire others in the group or remind them of hobbies to take up. Collectively there were nature trails, art, sewing, and creative writing passions among others. As an advocate in telling your story, I'd recommend this time to fuel the creative spark and write your story.

I truly believe kindness is the norm. Kindness for Mental Health Awareness Week Viva Forever!
