In Write On! Mr Griffin vividly recounts his experiences and reflections of accessing different counseling services and moving on to facilitate writing groups within local Mind organisations in London. These groups are intended to support people recovering from mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and psychosis. 

Mr Griffin describes the in-depth complexities of his facilitation work from the perspective of a peer (ie a fellow user of therapeutic services) and volunteer, which is unusual in this field. He provides many interesting insights and ideas in relatively few words about the experience of writing and group dynamics! 

Mr Griffin explains his methodology applied to group facilitation, which is humanistic and libertarian, designed to boost personal empowerment, social interaction and personal responsibility. His writing style is honest where he has experienced challenges and engaging. He describes in qualitative terms the visible benefits experienced by group participants.

Thank you for your time and we hope that you enjoy reading Write On!
