Join us for an informal and friendly coffee morning with Blagoje Vucinic (Mr B), Autism Post Diagnosis Support Worker from Autism Support Team.

This is an opportunity for parents of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder(ASD) to ask questions about the diagnosis, to discuss practical strategies for meeting the needs of your children, to meet other parents, to share information and experiences, or simply just to listen.

The Southwark Women’s Forum is a women-only support group for those aged 18 or above who have lived experience of mental health problems and who live in Southwark.

What can I expect from this group?

You can expect a safe, supportive space for women who have experienced or are experiencing difficulty with mental health.

Our aim is to connect the community with local services and events, as well encouraging participants to connect with one another. We like to give members an opportunity for honest, open discussion with women who can share similar experiences and also a chance to feed back their views of mental health services.

When is Southwark Women’s Forum held?

The forum meets face-to-face as a group once a month on the second Friday of every month, from 12pm – 2pm in Southwark.
