Following the success of the pilot project, our Perinatal Mental Health service are excited to offer another series of six online Expressive Writing sessions for people who’ve experienced mental distress around the time of having a baby. The sessions aim to increase participants’ confidence and enjoyment in putting pen to paper to express themselves.
The project is being run in partnership between the Royal Literary Fund and the NHS Perinatal Mental Health service in Sheffield. The author involved is Susan Elliot Wright, whose 2019 novel, The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood, centres around perinatal mental health experiences.
The sessions will take place each week on Wednesdays from 22nd February to 29th March. Sessions will last for 90 minutes, from 1 to 2:30pm, and will be held on Microsoft Teams, which can be accessed by an app download. Attendance is free.
