Wellbeing – what works for you?

‘Having a Voice’ is a course we deliver to help participants develop their communication skills and build the confidence to speak up and have their views and opinions heard.

During January 2019, we delivered some photography workshops with the group as part of Macc’s Sharing Our Wellness campaign. Participants worked really hard to take lots of photos of the things that help them to stay well, and produced an interesting range of images that show how wellbeing is something that we can appreciate in lots of everyday ways.

I like this quote. It means that some women are remembered because they behaved differently.

One of my favourite people from history is Emmeline Pankhurst, who was born in Manchester. She was a member of the Suffragettes, who helped women to win the right to vote. She behaved differently, and that has helped women to be able to say what they want to say, and do what they want to do. I feel like I get my rights when I come to Back on Track.

I like this photo, it’s colourful, and has lots of vegetables. Food makes me happy. I like the café at Back on Track, and I eat lots of veg at home.

I’d been struggling with my mental health but it improved when I found a place to live where I could cook my own food. We eat together once a week, which is good for socialising with the other residents. I decided to stop eating meat a year ago. Since then I’ve lost 10kilos and feel much better.
