Friday marked the end of an era as MindOut Weymouth said a double goodbye! Group Facilitator Michelle and longstanding volunteer Dyllan are both moving on to pastures new. For the last year the pair delivered our weekly LGBT group, helping people that needed support for their mental health.
Au Revoir but not goodbye…
Dyllan has been with the Weymouth group for 3 years – from the very start of it. He also assists our weekly Bournemouth MindOut group. As a transgender person Dyllan has warmly welcomed new people to the groups. This is so important as people are often anxious starting a group for the first time. He’s also shared his transition with the group and this has helped others starting their own journey.
Michelle’s caring nature and sense of humour will be missed, but we’ll keep in touch with her as she searches for work closer to her new home.
Dyllan will still assist Sarah-Jane at our Bournemouth MindOut also fundraising at various events. They will both be missed in Weymouth!
We have a new facilitator starting next Friday, and Debbie is excited about getting to know the group. We wish her the best of luck in her new role.
MindOut Weymouth meets weekly between 2-4pm at the Adult Learning Centre, Dorchester Road, in Weymouth. You can simply turn up – there’s no need for a referral.
