African Yams

African Yams

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~Hippocrates

African Yams is part of Side by Side, a programme that aims to improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems in Northampton through access to peer support. Mind, Bipolar UK, Depression Alliance and grant-funded projects are working together, with support from the Big Lottery Fund, to increase access to peer support and research its benefits. The 10 support sessions provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere where members benefit from both giving and receiving support based on their experiences.

The themed sessions begin with a fun cooking activity where all are encouraged to participate in the preparation of tasty meals.

If you are living in the Northampton area (including Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Daventry and Towcester) and are not currently engaged with mental health services (but even if you are) you are more than welcome to attend!
