Positive Affirmation Calendar
I recently worked with a lovely group of women on a Positive Reflections workshop. As part of the 8 session workshop, they explored the stereotypes faced by people with mental health problems and chose to design a positive affirmation calendar.
The calendar has been designed to challenge the typical way that mental health is depicted in media. We had lots of fun in the photoshoots!
The participants wrote positive affirmations for each month, with an aim to improve positivity and mood throughout that month. Each affirmation and design of the photoshoot was chosen specifically for the month by the women.
The photographs were taken at Rheola Walled Gardens, and we were all very grateful to Glynneath Training Centre for allowing us access. It’s a beautiful location.
Western Valley Community First funded this project, with support from Hafan Cymru. We hope that Hafan Cymru will be using the calendar for fund raising in 2017.
