Loved it, great to be aboard the GoodYarn Team. Looking forward to making a difference and talking about Mental Health and helping others to also do that

The key is to think big but start small. GoodYarn has been one of those programmes we have been able to build from the ground up with the support of the GoodYarn Team.
Was a great setting and was an inspiring group to be part of. Thanks for your energy and passion…it's contagious!

Thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, love the concept of peer to peer (human to human) believe that this is the best concept that I have come across in my history with Mental illness over the last 24 years.
