FEEL (Friends of East End Loonies) is a democaratic anarchic group created by service users, also open to carers and mental health professionals.
We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month @ LARC, 62 Fieldgate St, London E1 1ES (6.30-8.30pm; drop-ins and new faces are always welcome).
Our aim is to rise more awareness on the psychiatry cosh and empower people in finding their best solutions in managing their mental health/distress.
FEEL was born in November 2007 by an idea of David Kessel, a retired physician who writes amazing poetry, and Myra Garrett a remarkable woman that has been living and working in Tower Hamlets, committing to the voluntary sector since 1976 and actively campaigning around health, housing and getting rid of nuclear weapons still today.
Since 2007 the group has grown from strength to strength, inviting new members and rising more interest within the mental health community.
With this blog we also wish to offer a source of hope & inspiration sharing useful relevant links for anyone that might be going trough a difficult time.
We are working towards a common goal: join us in doing so. Working together GREATER results can be achieved!
