Talk for Health September 2021 Special – Drawsilience

September 23 @ 18:00 - 20:00

Talk for Health’s monthly Special events are an opportunity for anyone in the community to come along, learn something new, and experience talking for health.


For the Talk for Health September Special, they are gathering online for a collaborative drawing session (no expertise required). The session will be run by T4H graduate John-Paul Flintoff.

They will be working at exactly the same time, on the same image.

After familiarising ourselves with the simple online drawing app, we’ll investigate how using colour and shapes can affect mood and how working at a distance can still create a welcoming community bond.

They will use simple drawings to capture a sense of our current wellbeing, and we’ll finish by drawing something uplifting.

The app they use works best on a desktop computer, with a mouse – it can be quite frustrating otherwise.


The second half of the Special will introduce you to, and give you a chance to experience, some of the four key learning areas of Talk for Health:

• Open and truthful talking

• Empathic listening

• Basic counselling skills

• How to set up an ongoing group

After this event, you can go straight into a Talk for Health Café, where you will learn peer counselling skills and get plenty of space to talk and get/give support. You can also sign up for the Full 4-day Talk for Health Peer Counselling Programme for a deeper therapeutic and skills-building experience.
