When you first hear about Open Up it sounds like such a big idea, but the minute you walk into that room it feels so natural. It’s a space that’s completely safe and supportive, filled with people that genuinely want to hear what you have to say. To connect with other people your age in such an authentic way feels so human and that’s why it’s so valuable to me. Everyone’s life comes with its own unique challenges, so I would encourage everybody to give it a chance and come to an Open Up session, I’m so glad that I did!

Open Up for me is a place to have insightful conversations and experience real connection with other human beings.
When I first heard about Open Up I was nervous. Talking about my mental health is something I don't feel too open about but seeing how supportive everyone is at Open Up helped me talk out loud about things I've needed to get off my chest for a while now. Open Up has helped me feel more comfortable speaking about how I feel and made me realise I'm not alone on this journey.

I was at the Open Up session yesterday. I really loved it and I'm so stoked that something like Open Up has been created locally and is so accessible. I'll definitely be letting my friends know about it and I hope to come to more of the sessions.
