Storytelling & Mental Health
Cheryl has been working with a New Writers Group in Llanelli funded by Artscare Gofal Celf for adults who have Mental Health Support Needs. As well as writing Haiku & rhyming couplets, the group have written & recorded a talking book as well as a song, finding a voice and a platform from which to be heard. In 2018, Cheryl is delivering a Creative Writing Course, investigating the senses and visualisation in relation to Life Story & Storytelling. Past Mental Health Projects include 'Pieces of Me' a book written with adults attending a secure unit for support with Mental Health Needs in Blackwood, funded in partnership with Hafal. The book was identified as best practice by the Cambridge University International Mental Health Conference.
