Jackie Farrell  Support Groups and “The Journey” Coordinator gives an update on NTF Support Groups. 

Apart from the regular NTF online Zoom support groups, October also saw independent zoom groups take place.

Co-founders of Worthing Mental Health Awareness Week (WMHAW), Cllr Bob Smytherman and Carol Barber are supportive of my Worthing tremor group. So it was a pleasure to have been invited to give a talk at WMHAW 2020 on how physical tremors can impact mental health.

Due to Covid restrictions the 2020 event took place via Zoom, with most of the talks being live streamed to Facebook, including the tremor talk at Worthing Mential Health Awareness Week on 6 October 6.

Both my Worthing and Sutton support groups have not met face to face since March. With it looking unlikely this will change in the foreseeable future, I have started independent online zoom groups for each.

The first online event for Sutton 23 October proved popular and a follow up is arranged for Friday 11 December, 11.00am–12.30pm.

The initial online group for Worthing will be Saturday 21 November 1.30-3.00pm

I hope to see you at any of the online meetups.
