We validate emotions, experiences and life’s challenges. We create a safe space to share, free of stigma. Through sharing, we often find feelings of depression and anxiety are lessened. Knowing others have experienced similar issues, and that these can be overcome, helps to provide hope. We aim to inspire hope in both storytellers and guests, and to put a spotlight on the power of human connection and resilience.
Through sharing and celebrating our personal stories of resilience, Touch aims to prevent struggles with mental wellbeing beginning, or getting worse. We use these stories to enable change for the better in our communities and the NHS and social care settings.
