​A LOCAL mental health charity has launched a new wellness group for women across the ​Bradford district​ and Craven.

Mind in Bradford is running the group in partnership with Together Women and ​it will start in October.

Together Women is a charity that supports women and girls across the North of England through a range of complex issues including social injustice and crimes against women.

The group will look at the issues women in Bradford face and help them develop strategies and coping mechanisms such as journaling, poetry and meditation.

Issue​s that will be talked about include ​the menopause, mindfulness, and personal safety in the community and online.

Nyree Jordan, a Wellbeing Practitioner at Mind in Bradford said: “We are trying our best to reach women who may be struggling to help them find ways to cope with their mental health.

“The pandemic has affected adult women just as much as everyone else and we need the​m to know that there are services out there for them.

“Before the pandemic we had sessions for women but coming out of the pandemic we want to let them know that we are open and still available to help them.”

The sessions are open to all women, but mostly aimed at women who are over the age of 30.

The group will be held face-to-face every Friday, 12pm-1:30pm, for six weeks commencing on Friday 1 October and will be held at Together Women, Carlisle Business Centre.

Registered clients can book on ​as they normally would and anyone ​else interested can contact Mind in Bradford on 01274 730815 or at admin@mindinbradford.org.uk.
