Coping with Life

Coping With Life Participant Views

“I found out about the workshops when I visited Merthyr and the Valleys Mind Information and Advice Centre.

For me this is the first time I have been able to attend any social occasion, since I do not going out and only ever go out accompanied by my family.

I have found the workshops very helpful and have been able to attend all 6.  The only place I attend other than this is a local literacy group which is due to end shortly and do not know what I will be able to do after this time, but due to taking part in the workshops now know that there is help out there for me.

I have found the breathing techniques very helpful and the workshops have helped to keep me calm in difficult situations, one which was quite recently.  I was able to use some of the skills and techniques learnt within the Coping with Life Workshops to keep me safe and calm.

I would recommend the workshops to anyone experiencing challenges in life as they have helped me quite a lot”.
