"The Mentell experience enabled me to realise that struggling with mental health challenges is normal and is nothing to feel ashamed about. This environment enabled me to feel comfortable opening up about the challenges I had been facing.
Mentell benefited me as the circle made me accepted and as part of a group facing similar if not the same type of challenges. As a result, I found new friends and a sense of camaraderie with the circle.
My advice to anybody thinking of attending their first Mentell meeting would be - do it! You will be surprised how open, caring and responsive people in the circle are to you."
