About WOMENtalk

We are relaunching weekly WOMENtalk sessions from September 2023

WOMENtalk is the sister project of MENtalk, the charity’s successful men’s mental health project

SBitC expect that the return of WOMENtalk to be extremely attractive to women suffering with mental health problems, especially following the challenges over the past few years.

WOMENtalk will provide fun activities and social opportunities in community venues, starting on 13th September in Nuneaton and 18th September in Coventry

Each session will be led by SBitC’s Mental Health Co-Ordinator with support from SBitC’s professional sports coaches

Course content will vary based on participants’ needs but ice-breaking activities and get to know you activities will form part of all courses

The wide menu of activities that participants can benefit from include warm-ups, stretching, physical activities such as basketball, badminton, table tennis, football, archery, chess and Jenga

WOMENtalk will be co-produced by participants ensuring they choose the weekly activities they take part in

Beneficiaries will decide which topics they would like to discuss on a 1-1 basis or group workshop

These could cover a range of subjects related to mental health, including goal setting, diet and healthy eating, sleep hygiene, mindfulness, stress management, depression, anxiety, self-compassion, kindness, resilience, positive behaviour, making friends, maintaining positive relationships, teamwork, togetherness, communication, how to voice our opinions positively, loneliness, social isolation, self-confidence, and self-esteem

For some people, physical activity can be as powerful as medicine or therapy. The Mental Health Foundation have said that for people with depression “comparative studies have shown that exercise can be as effective as medication or psychotherapy”

Exercise releases natural chemicals like adrenaline and serotonin. It helps to release muscle tension, raises the body temperature, and causes tiredness. These all help relieve stress and provide relaxation, which is of particular benefit for people with mental health problems.

We accept referrals through professionals and women can self-refer at any time.
