On the 28th February Some PLUS members met to discuss various issues and opportunities available at the minute. Included in the discussions were; The ongoing Inquiry into Tayside MH services, PLUS work representing the voice of experience and ensuring the equality of the ‘knowing’ voice, Andy Mans Club as an extremely valuable help to men and also various activities and volunteering jobs for PLUS members.
The importance of having purpose and feeling you mattered was also discussed – how to combat the dangers of being on your own and the downside of inward thinking. WRAP was talked about as a way of changing ones thinking to a belief of having some control in how our mental health is, and the chance of becoming a WRAP trainer.
The session ended at 1pm and the group enjoyed the experience of meeting, being together and sharing their thoughts and ideas.
