My local council has decided that MASH is a great idea and has given me, in conjunction with ‘The Red Balloon Family’* the go ahead to start support groups in my neighbourhood.
The first MASH Group will start mid September on Monday Afternoons
Loughton Methodist Church, High Street Loughton Essex
Term Time only
to build friendships and encourage Mums to
- seek help
- find emotional and spiritual support.
- grow in confidence and strength
- talk about how self-harm affects them
- befriend one another
- pray for one another
- bring hope to other struggling families in their own communities.
My vision is for more groups to follow after the success of the Loughton group.
For more information please email.
