Storytelling is one of the foundations of our culture. We can create connections by sharing stories – especially those that offer inspiration and hope. Recovery in mental health is not always well understood; sharing your story makes personal recovery come alive. It also supports values and strengthens lessons learned from life experiences. It helps to build community and create connections.

You can find lots of inspirational stories; use the search bar at the top to find stories relevant to you. To return to this page after a search, please press the back button in your browser.

College supports Man Cave initiative

As part of our ongoing campaign to support more men to seek wellbeing support, we are pleased to share details of Viewpoint Hertfordshire’s new ‘Man Cave’ initiative. This male-focused group, delivered online via Zoom, will provide a venue for men with mental health or addiction challenges to talk about the things that are affecting them. 

The project will include four closed weekly support groups of up to six participants and will run for twelve weeks. Sessions are relaxed and provide a safe space for men to talk about subjects they may not otherwise feel comfortable sharing. At the end of the twelve weeks, participants will have gained a new network of peers to connect with and act as a support base for the future.

Sessions will take place on Thursdays and Fridays. To find out more details, visit Viewpoint Hertfordshire’s website
