Taking the Biscuit is an informal group for female professionals / former professionals who suffer from mental health conditions and are of working age. The group provides a space to share or discuss the unique challenges facing that particular group in trying to overcome mental health stigma and other obstacles, either in returning to work / finding new meaning in a world where they no longer work.
The group is simply to share and support – as little or as much as you wish.
For more details email them, or you can just turn up. They politely request that you do not bring your support worker if you have one.
Taking the Biscuit is female only and is on the third Tuesday of each month, 1.00 – 2.30pm at Coffika Cafe (formerly Couch).Twitter: @BiscuitTaking
