The People’s Hub a message from the people
People living with life challenging conditions may have major issues that can affect the whole community. Discussion and management of a variety of mental and/or physical disabilities is vital to improving the quality of life for those affected, as well as their families and carers.In many cases, people living with a disability or illness have limited work choices and limited social interaction. They find it difficult to establish and accomplish goals .This can lead to low self esteem and a lack of confidence to reach out for help.
Standard practice for people with a mental or physical condition treatment is to join a support group. Usually led by professional therapist (such as social workers, psychologist, nurse or psychiatrist) who has had some training in facilitating group discussion.From our focus groups people with condition and their families want more than a professional opinion, they want to engage with others that understand the emotional, mental and social challenges one faces.
They want the ability to discuss their thoughts, experiences, ideas and feelings without being judged. Unlike formal one-on-one sessions or support groups were people often find it hard to open up in front of a professional therapist.The people’s hub helps allows people to learn from other’s who are experiencing or have experienced what others are going through.
