    My aim is to raise awareness about mental illnesses, and the importance of caring for your mental health. Mental health care can be expensive, draining, and daunting. So I hope to remove those issues, along with the stigma of having a mental illness, and provide help for anyone, regardless of an illness or not. I want to provide this in a social and warm setting so that we can all make friends, and improve ourselves along the way. This is not a counselling session, but an opportunity to learn about how to support your own mental health and wellbeing. Come to one or all sessions, up to you!


    Week 3: Make Heads Turn

    You're a pretty incredible person, and you deserve to make heads turn. This week is all about learning how to make people pay attention to you.

Learn to make heads turn.

    Look Forward to meeting everyone and lets have a great time of bowling.

    Please Note: That if anyone is in a wheelchair they will need to use the only ramp on the far side of the building to get down to the lanes. In past this hasn't been an issue for members as normally lanes that have been used have been at the ramp end but in future case this is an issue. The area that also bowling happens does get spaced from time to time with large groups and we encourage members to not to block off areas to steps so people can come and go as they please.

    Week 4: Be Fabulous. Be the Bawse.

    Discover the power of having strong values. This means finding out what you are grateful for, and why expressing that gratitude is so important. Learn how to not just coexist with other people, but how to positively impact them and enjoy their company. Learn how to navigate uncomfortable and sticky situations that may tempt you to act poorly. A true Bawse knows that compassion, love and kindness should never be taken for granted.
