Typically, conversations about mental health take place within three solitudes – workers, people struggling and those who love and care for them
In Trialogue we come together, sit in a circle and talk together – but most importantly we listen together.
The hope is to share, to gain insight and to learn from each other and with each other.
If you have an interest in mental health, your own, that of a friend or family member, or of the wider society we all live in, then you might be interested in joining us.
What happens at trialogue?
Trialogue [pronounced “try-a-log”] is a conversation in which we explore and share ideas in that great human tradition of sitting in circle; talking; listening and learning from and with each other.
In Trialogue we seek to create a space in which we can connect, hear and be heard, find shared understanding, maybe find ways that can help us heal and help heal.
There’s no lecture, no convincing, no motion to debate and no verbal jousting – we come as equals representing naught but ourselves.
We leave our roles at the door and come together first as fellow human beings. We share our personal experience, our human perspective, frustrations and hopes – but mostly we listen to each other.
You don’t have to talk if you don’t want to, but we do ask that you listen.
