In Our Own Words encourages people with mental health challenges who want to write and present their stories in
both a written and performance context . We want to print bi-yearly booklets and expand the work being done into
performance readings, presented to peers and the general public. Shared and lived experience being the key. We
will develop a self-help book written by service users, for service users, their families and allies. In order to help
boost confidence we will also encourage our participants to join in with the Singing Social and participate in a
podcast. This will be a great way to develop more self-esteem and self-confidence.
