Where is it held?
During the COVID19 pandemic, this group meets online using Zoom (www.zoom.com). To take part you will need to make an account for yourself at the Zoom website, download and install Zoom. After you have joined the group the facilitator will email you the details needed by Zoom to log in for a session.

In my opinion, Kindred Minds is a very welcoming and safe space full of interesting, talented and dynamic people. In my time with the group, I have received encouragement and support which has been very helpful for me. Every time I attend Kindred Mind I always learn something new and useful and always look forward to the meetings. What sets Kindred Minds apart is that it is therapeutic, without being clinical, and it is run by the members for the members
