Gather Round...

Breaking bread and having family discussions with our loved ones is such a fulfilling, wholesome activity


Unless we are trying to hide adverse mental health issues


Then it’s a nightmare at worst, and a farcical pantomime at best


The pressure of self-imposed deceit is a terrible thing to bear


We speak from years of experience here


Its not helpful. Nor is it necessary


Because, emotional well-being is never us versus them


It's always a family affair


And the more family members we can get to join in with these moments of sharing, the better All our long term health prospects will be


Mental Health truly is the great equaliser: we all have it. Good and bad


Our dining room is where we come together and truly bond, irrespective of age, gender, or anything else that society likes to define us through


So please, gather round our table and lets begin those life-affirming conversations


There is always a chair for you here
