                 My Time My Space
Supportive creative workshops for women with post
                   natal depression
There's a supportive artist who inspires you,
there's a health visitor to support you, and there
are people who are similar to you to listen, to
express. And there's time. But all of it added up
together becomes more than that. A lot more than
that."
             My Time My Space


    Accredited delivery alongside SEPE?
My Time My Space is an innovative partnership
project between Creativity Works, Health Visitors
and Children's Centres. My Time My Space
provides a 'safe space' environment where women
can express themselves creatively and gives
opportunities to develop community and peer
support for women locally.
