🔦 Spotlight on:

 

In November, we celebrated Movember and the health and wellbeing of our members who identify as men and trans men.

 

We heard from the community that isolation and loneliness were experiences so many of us were having. We started a discussion about living with loneliness where members of our community could connect with each other and share their experiences of loneliness

 

SANE also led a deep dive into effective communication, exploring verbal and non-verbal communication, as well as active listening, assertive communication, emotion regulation and empathy – well worth the read!

 

SANE hosted two Topic Tuesday’s in November. We kicked things off with a discussion on the role of art and creativity in our lives, with special guest and peer support worker @periwinklepixie.
