About this Event

MENTALK is a joint community health and well being support initiative between AFC Bournemouth Community Sport Trust and Wessex Cancer Trust.

A monthly peer support / talk group meeting of men dealing with cancer, coming together to share knowledge, encouragement, and experiences.

The group aims to:

Promote peer support. Sharing a space with other men who understand some of what you are experiencing

Provide knowledge and skills. Men sharing suggestions about dealing with challenging times/issues, or suggestions for resources and providers. Guest speakers sharing expertise and opportunities for better health and well being.

Provide a safe and supportive environment where men feel comfortable to talk openly, express themselves and share if they choose to.

The meeting will be made up of three parts; table conversations, hearing from a guest speaker followed by an open conversation.

GUEST SPEAKER: TO BE CONFIRMED.
