Past Meetings In addition to the meetings where we have been visited by expert speakers, the group has had monthly meet-ups and discussions, and mindfulness sessions run by a local pyschological therapy service. September 2018The September meeting welcomed more new members to the group and provided an opportunity for regular members to deepen the supportive social connections that have been formed since the start almost a year ago. The Bristol group has welcomed over 50 people through its doors, and has hosted a range of speakers addressing topics including psychological, nutritional and lifestyle therapies to complement the medical approaches being trialled by individual members.
