Brighton Housing Trust’s (BHT) Threshold Service, which supports women and their children in the community with varying issues including maternal mental health, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress, celebrated International Women’s Day.
They had a stall at the Brighton Dome’s annual International Women’s Day celebration on Saturday the 4th of March promoting Threshold’s services and distributing an amateur publication of artwork completed in their drop-ins which celebrates women’s wellbeing.
The Manager of Threshold Women’s Services, Melanie Barnard, said: “We know that there are many women in the local community who are challenged with dealing with issues such as abuse, violence, post-natal depression and trauma. We believe a women’s wellbeing is vital and as a service we attend events like this to ensure people know that women’s voices are heard. We offer one to one maternal mental health counselling; drop ins, wellbeing groups and workshops and much more.
