We find that a lot of people like to come along and may be quiet and just listen during the first few times, however once they get a feel of the format and group they find the confidence to speak up about their own issues.

MATES (MATES Mental health Awareness Through Educational Speaking Community Interest Company) is a community, it’s about all of us. We created MATES because we want to bridge that gap between keeping things bottled up and having someone to chat to. We got together with the common goal that we know we can make a difference. Our friends know that we are approachable individuals and they can and do have an honest non-judgemental, confidential conversation about mental health with us whenever they want. We want to open that conversation up to all of you. We want everyone to feel they can open up and chat to us. Getting things off of your chest is such a massive step, a really important step. We care. Conversations change lives.
