Women Only Wednesdays
Wednesdays have changed at Rochdale and District Mind…
Our Wednesdays are known as Women Only Wednesdays.
Feeling safe is important. We are creating a safer and supportive space for anyone who identifies as female to access support with their mental health and wellbeing.
Women are more likely to have experienced abuse, in the forms of childhood sexual exploitation and domestic abuse.
- 20% of women have experienced some type of sexual assault since the age of 16.
- 3.1% of women (510,000) aged 16 to 59 had experienced a sexual assault in the last year.
- 31% of young women aged 18-24 report having experienced sexual abuse in childhood (NSPCC, 2011).
- 26% of women have experienced some form of domestic abuse since the age of 16.
Each Wednesday we hold groups that are open to all women. We will continue to offer all of our current services for males, with any appointments and support groups being held on other days of the week. You can take a look at our calendar of events here to see what is available on Wednesdays and any other day of the week.
Help us spread our message, if you know a female who would like support with their mental health and wellbeing please let them know about our Women Only Wednesday
