Look After Yourself News Newsletter - 25 May 2023

Please see the information below provided by Sole Survivor PTSD Support about their new support group.

Sole Survivor PTSD Support CIC have recently started a weekly Adult Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) Peer Support Group at the Wirral Multicultural Centre building, 111 Conway St., Birkenhead CH41 4AF for people from the BAME, Refugee or Asylum Seeker Communities.

The trauma informed peer support groups are facilitated by people with lived experience of PTSD, and can help people to work towards normalising the debilitating effects of trauma they maybe dealing with on a day to day basis.

The groups are free, run for 90 minutes from 6.00 p.m. every Wednesday, are mixed and people are welcome to bring along friends or support workers if they are anxious about going somewhere new for the first time.

We provide a safe, non judgmental space for people to meet up to reduce isolation, explore pathways to wellness, and learn from others in an empathic and understanding way.

Your clients do not need a diagnosis of PTSD, common symptoms are displayed on the second page of the attached flyer.

To summarise; Free – Weekly – Mixed – Inclusive – Safe – 6.00pm – 7.30pm every Wednesday for 6 months.
