3 November 25th Navigating the Storm: understanding trauma and empowerment!
Tegan and Caroline from Glyndwr University will be talking about their ‘Navigating the Storm’ animation.

Navigating the storm has been created in collaboration with ACE Hub Wales to help explain trauma and how we may come to understand it. The animation was co-produced by Illustration and Animation students at Glyndwr University and seeks to illustrate the way in which meaningful connections can be created using a trauma-informed lens. Navigating the Storm explores how we can begin the voyage to becoming more trauma-informed and responsive whilst appreciating that we are not predictable, we all experience life differently and nobody is immune to difficulties. This is a way of thinking, being, feeling, and connecting which allows us to discover the world through another’s eyes. Together we can nurture society and lead with gentle curiosity and understanding. This belongs to us all and, starting with ourselves, we can help to cast healing ripples of kindness throughout our communities.
'We will be diving into the themes of the animation at the coffee morning and discussing how the animation can be used in the initial stages on the journey in becoming trauma-informed. We will also discuss some of the extensions based on the concept (which fall outside of the animation) including ‘The Sea of Grief’ and ‘Becoming the Lighthouse’. The session will include a Q&A.'

4 December 16th Safe Space: Overcoming the stigma of men's mental health!
Andrew Greenway from Andy’s Man Club.
At ANDYSMANCLUB, we want to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health and create a judgment-free, confidential space where men can be open about the storms in their lives. We aim to achieve this through weekly, free-to-attend peer-to-peer support groups for men aged over 18.

In mid-2016, nine men met in a small room in the stereotypical Yorkshire town of Halifax with a simple aim of talking through their issues and helping each other deal with their mental health. All in attendance were agreed there was a magic in that room that had to be shared. This was the start of a movement that has grown faster than anyone first involved could have ever imagined. Fast forward 6 years and ANDYSMANCLUB now has groups at almost 100 locations across three countries of the UK.
ANDYSMANCLUB takes its name from Andrew Roberts, a man who sadly took his own life aged 23 in early 2016. Andy’s family had no inkling that he was suffering or struggling to the extent that he would do this, and as a result looked deeper into male suicide and men’s mental health. They soon discovered that male suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50, with male mental health surrounded by well-ingrained cultural stigma in the UK.
