Friday 14th October is World Mental Health Day. We have created a 'thought' tree which we will put up in the Pankhurst Centre to provoke discussion and debate and hopefully we will be able to dispel a few of the myths and negative stereotypes about mental health.
If you have experienced any mental health issues now or in the past, or if you work in the field of mental health and would like to share some of your thoughts or feelings on the subject, then just post your comments on this blog and we will add them to the tree.
What We Do:
WomenMATTA provide an intensive, holistic support service to women at risk of offending, women at risk of receiving custodial sentences and women who are released from custody after serving a sentence of less than 6 months.
We run a free drop in every Friday 1-4 where we provide a hot lunch, practical support (eg help with housing, benefits etc) and run a different activity each week. This is open to all women (18+) whether or not they are in the criminal justice system. The drop in is held at the Pankhurst Centre, 60-62 Nelson Street, Chorlton on Medlock, Manchester M13 9WP (in the MRI complex).
