THE COW SHED
Who: For Event Industry Professionals
What: Mental Health Peer Support.
“This is a fully confidential, mental health peer support group, primarily aimed at those working in the entertainment Industry, yet we are open to all.
What we hope to provide is a safe open place, where people can seek support, advice, help or offer the same.
We are not professional counsellors but collectively we have all been through a lot.
From depression to addiction, loss and just plain old stressed out.
Through our experience, we’ve found that one person alone can do it, yet we can never do it alone. We are all here to ask for help, to listen or to offer help.”
