Kirknewton Time to Talk Cafe


Local parent and Community Counsellor Fiona Halliday wished to start a support group in Kirknewton for parents and carers of children with additional support needs.  She recognised that parents and carers can experience high levels of isolation, and thought that a regular group would help people to meet and share experiences.  She noticed that Thursday 1st Feb is also “Time to Talk Day”, a day that encourages open exchange and talking to reduce isolation for people suffering mental health issues.

While these are two seperate issues, Fiona realised that she had a wonderful opportunity to bring people together over tea and cake as well as launching her Support Group.  In collaboration with KCDT, Fiona would like to invite all community members to a Mental Health Pop-up Community Cafe on Thursday 1st Feb, 11am – 1pm in The Green Room.  Baking donations would be greatly appreciated and everyone is welcome to drop in or stay for the duration.
