Singing for Wellbeing

Singing for Wellbeing:

(for those affected and bereaved by suicide)

 

Suicide Liason Service

Supported by a grant from the Cornwall Rural Community Council, in collaboration with Cornwall Mind and the Suicide Liaison Service, Singing for Wellbeing is a community activity for adults (over 18 years) living in Cornwall and bereaved by the traumatic death of a family member, partner, or a close friend.

The singing group will be held on the first Friday morning of each month from 10 am to 12 pm at Revive, Camborne, with parking on site and close to the A30.

You don’t have to be able to sing to come along and join in, and there are no auditions! It’s a safe and supportive environment in which to come together with others who have shared a similar loss, benefit from peer support, and participate in an enjoyable activity
which can improve your wellbeing. Revive have a café that is open every morning and there will be an opportunity to socialise. A member of the Suicide Liaison Service will be on hand to provide support should it be needed.

The singing is led by Gail Hampshire, an experienced and enthusiastic singing leader, who is passionate about singing for health and wellbeing. Gail originally trained as a physiotherapist and is experienced at working with both individuals and groups, encouraging people to achieve their best. Her sessions are fun and enjoyable, with new songs taught by ear, in a friendly relaxed environment.
