Come and join us on Thursday at our Neurokin walk and talk. 🌳 🌲 🌳 🍃 🍁 🍂 🍃 🍁 Our Neurokin walk and talk (Peer support group) is a great way to connect with other Neurodivergent people.As someone who went through the majority of my life feeling different and not understanding why? I am passionate about helping others embrace their Neurodivergent identity and feel part of a community.Our peer support group is a friendly and welcoming place, where you can talk to others who can really relate to your neurodiverse lived experience. The lived experience and understanding of other neurodiverse people can help us better understand ourselves !!!We are here to support you no matter where you are in terms of your self-exploration and expression.I understand coming to a group for the first time can be quite a daunting experience for many of you. So please feel welcome to bring anyone with you to help you feel more relaxed. If you would like to find out more about this group please don’t hesitate to get intouch. Looking forward to meeting you all!Annemarie (Tees Valley Buddies Founder)#neurodiversity #walk&talk ... See MoreSee Less
