A peer facilitated creative space held by Alexa Sargeant (Wild Wisdom Facilitator @Space for Nature), and community artist Rebecca Jackson (Speak Their Name Quilt Project) .
We aim to provide a safe space where women who have been let down by and/or experienced trauma as a result of the Mental Health (MH) System can get together. Through this Space we hope to inspire, support and empower women to reclaim their voice, connect to their creative power and inner wisdom and challenge how women with MH issues are treated and perceived by MH services and society as a whole.
We (Rebecca and Alexa) both have lived experience of being let down by MH Services in our local area. We are passionate about addressing inequalities in the MH system, particularly how services are commissioned and the gaps in what they provide.
