Stories for Change at Connect, Swansea.
Based in Swansea, Connect aims is to provide a social framework that can enable adults living with mental health issues and other vulnerable people, to live as fulfilled lives as possible. They work to combat the personal and social consequences of mental illness, to promote innovative, client-led approaches to recovery, and to facilitate mental well-being through therapeutic activity.
Our Resident Storyteller, Prue Thimbleby ran Storyteller Training Course with the people who attend Connect. Clients said they felt more confident for having done the course, that it connected them to the stories of others. One client said that she felt she had become the swan, like the one in the story that she had learnt, she was no longer an ugly duckling. You can hear our New Storytellers in their own words on our Top Tips page.
