Frazzled Cafes: Coffee shops for Mental Illness

Ruby Wax embarks on ‘A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled’…ruby-wax-frazzled-cafe

Frazzled Cafe meetings provide a ‘talk-in’ place where people who are feeling frazzled can meet on a regular basis to talk and share their personal stories in a safe, anonymous and non-judgmental environment – a place where it’s ok, to not be ok.

A key factor in helping to overcome those feelings is knowing that we are not alone – there is no substitute for meeting face-to-face and connecting with others. This isn’t just for the one-in-four Britons who will suffer a mental illness at some point in their lives, but for the four-in-four feeling overwhelmed by the stresses of modern life.
