Going to the men’s group in Kirkby has made me happy. We learnt new things and worked as a team and I made some new friends, it was really cool. The other men and the staff were really kind and helpful, I was able to talk to them and they supported me when I was not feeling good. We were able to have a say in how the grouped worked which I liked doing. I would have liked the room to be bigger but it had a pool table and a kitchen which was good and I helped to cook meals. I enjoyed helping in the kitchen because I would like to move out of home and live more independently, overall everything was cool be did some good activities like sports and games and talked about being safe and looking after ourselves. Some of the subjects were a bit embarrassing but that’s good because it’s important to talk. I would like to do another group in the future which would be very good.
