Rosebuds is one of our groups for women who are living apart from their children, meeting weekly at the Tetley Art Gallery. It’s funded by Leeds Trust as part of their year long support of projects working in the community to overcome loneliness.
As part of this important piece of work, we have been working with Mentally Healthy Leeds who have provided us with a wonderful worker, Belinda Sawyer. She has been in to the group twice and run really fun and thought provoking sessions on the nature of femininity in the world and self-identity. The women have really enjoyed these sessions, and we had lots of really interesting conversations, thinking about who we are as women and how we present and communicate this to the world. From eating chocolate mindfully to making masks, we have really enjoyed the fun activities that Belinda runs. We are really looking forward to seeing what she has planned for us next! Thanks so much to Mentally Healthy Leeds at Touchstone, we really appreciate your input.
