February Newsletter.

Dear Friends,

During January meeting we've discussed a few general issues that hopefully will improve the running of our gatherings.
Simple rules such as having a chair and an agenda to follow at each meeting, collect the major action points to share for those that cannot join us were agreed. We also mentioned how important is respecting each other, taking turns in talking by rising hands, and very important keep an healthy sense of humour.
FEEL is never been intended to be a peer to peer support group, being already a large variety of them all across town. What we'd rather been focusing in is generating a progressive current that goes a different path than the one taken by the Psychiatric system. We are all individuals and all views are important and respected, specially when they come from personal experiences.

Having been independent up to now has perhaps limited our capacity of expansion and possibility to do some more radical work, but all of this takes time and lots of efforts and dedication from members. We are working towards this and all support, encouragement and criticism are very welcomed.

Next meeting is on February, Monday 21st @ The LARC Centre, 62 Fieldgate Street, Whitechapel E1 1ES 6.30-8.30pm. We hope to see you there.


  1. Hi My name is Bill and I'm a survivor. I live in Swindon and want to join with others to oppose the vicious attacks on our integrity, health and livelihoods by that gang of toffs that is calling themselves the government. Is there a national group or is it just down to local organisation? my email is and I would be grateful if you could send me any information that may help me to start/join a group.

  2. Hi Bill,
    Thank you for your query and interest in FEEL.
    We are just a group of volunteers that have been meeting up with the intension to stir up a bit of the rubbish that clogs up the piping of the P-system. There is no idea to build other groups, but you can always meet us at the monthly meetings if you wish to get an idea of what we do(every 3rd Monday at LARC, 62 Fieldgate St, London E1 1ES, 6.30-8.30pm, I know quite far for you...) or please try to join us at our next event on 12th March, 2-6 at the Kingsley Hall, Bow, (corner of Powis and Bruce Roads), London E3 3HJ
    There will be a great chance to network there and we look forward to meeting you of course.
    Best wishes, Nat
