Literacy and our mental health

Aleph is based in Brixham, Devon. 

For those in the local community, a number of services may be provided at reduced fees.

How can a creative literacy activity give us a feeling of well-being?

Even if our vocabulary is limited, we can find ways of using our spoken language to help us describe what we think and feel. The words we choose can affect the way we see ourselves, and can even affect the way we see the world. Finding new ways to use our day-to-day language can be freeing – and very enjoyable.

What about serious issues?

Some workshops do have a particularly serious theme. But it is still important to feel that something has been gained during the time spent together. Personal support is always offered after workshops, if it is required.

Please see the page Data of the Heart for all workshops.
