A woman who has battled her own mental health issues has launched a new group to help others going through similar struggles.

Chandré Roman started the March Wellbeing Group last month to give people a place to share their experiences of mental health problems and to give each other support and advice.

She said: “I myself was diagnosed with bipolar last year due to the pressures of a PGCE teacher training course I was studying, as well as being isolated away from family. It was a confusing time for me as I did not know how to cope with the anxiety that was developing.

“Medication is often trial and error which was difficult to deal with, but finally I am on the right course.

“Having gone through this, I thought it would be great if there is somewhere local to everybody to go to and know they are not alone.”

The group meets at the Georges pub conservatory every Saturday between noon and 2pm.

Everyone is welcome, and refreshments are available.
