We held drop ins at Alvanley Family Practice, Woodley  Medical Centre and at Brinnington Health Centre.  We were at Woodley StartingPoint cafe twice, an evening event raising awareness about surviving suicide attempts and we had a drop in there as well.  We were at Stockport Station, we spoke to a group of 40 Level Four Social Policy students at the University of Salford, we attended the Bracondale Champions Wellbeing Fun Day at St George’s Church and then to top it all off, we visited HOME in Manchester to watch a performance of an adaptation of Matt Haig’s book ‘Reasons to Stay Alive’ and took part in an after show discussion.
