Event description
The Empress Walk & New Haven will host support groups for Black Women to better their mental health by sharing stories & creative writing.

About this Event

The Empress Walk Women's Health Organization & New Haven Funeral Centre will host a series of monthly support groups that allow community women to share in healing & recovery from emotional and physical pain through writing and storytelling in a safe, supportive setting.

Expressive writing can improve overall outlook and mental wellness from depression, anxiety, stress, trauma as well as can be a relief from everyday life's challenges. Exercised in a group dynamic, writing provides even greater opportunities for personal growth, gain valuable feedback from those who understand as well as the benefit of developing a new skill.

We are a new support group designed especially for Black Women who suffer disproportionately from stress, mental health, trauma and chronic illnesses due to poverty, environment, status and racism. Sessions will be facilitated by The Empress Walk Founder & Writer Giselle Wilson where participants will be guided in writing, expression, storytelling and seeking support in order to develop constructive, positive ways for dealing with trauma and conflict.

If you are looking for a unique outlet to recover & excel, come to our first meetup on Monday, February 3, 2020 located at New Haven Funeral Centre. This beautiful, state of the art facility is a centre of healing and support with quality end of life as well as professional counselling services.
