Journaling for well-being workshops
Writer Jaime Breitnauer received a Gane Trust grant in the spring of 2023 to support the development of her journaling for well-being workshops at the Haven Round House with female parents of disabled young people in Bristol. The grant enabled her to run a further three sessions building on her learnings from the pilot programme undertaken in 2022. The feedback and impact data indicate that this work makes a genuine difference, empowering women to take control of their own mental health and well-being outcomes, and creating connected communities of carers in their local area. Jaime is now in a position to apply elsewhere for a larger grant, with a view to running these workshops monthly through 2024.
