Local Group news

The theme being discussed in our Support Group Meetings this month is Mental Health

Depression and anxiety are common in a lot of people with chronic health conditions in general and symptomatic hypermobility is no different, but there are many ways in which we can however help with our mental health:

  • Psychotherapy

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Counselling

  • Mindfulness and Meditation

  • Other relaxation techniques (see our very own members only Relaxations sessions online each Monday night -

Also, the recent members-only ‘Living Well With’ series of webinars covered Mental Health – see the first recording in here (Editors Note: the rest follow shortly, but are available to playback on Zoom while being processed. Members will be able to see the playback details here: Our apologies for the captions, they're not as we'd like but we're working on resources to correct them).

Support Group Meetings still to take place this month are:

  • Gateshead, Kent & Surrey, Yorkshire - 25th February

  • Nottingham – 26th February
