The P.R. group from Caledonia Clubhouse was invited in to Stirling University approximately ten years ago to speak directly to the students. Would it work? Could it work? Sara Hitchin had no doubt at all. She thought that speaking to the students face to face was the way ahead.
We built up a bond with the students, and they explained that our presentations have helped them through their time at the university. Each year we have new students coming through the system, so we always have someone new to speak to.
We have Unity members who go out to other meetings. If we are invited, our members will go almost anywhere to speak to interested parties about our various mental illnesses.
We have come a long way in the last ten years and continue getting stronger. However, we had to say goodbye to Sara last month, she will be sorely missed by our group. The good news is that Sian Lucas will be taking over those reigns.
We welcome Sian and look forward continuing to grow together.
