Flourish House have a brand new radio programme Let's Flourish!

Flourish House have a brand new radio programme Let's Flourish! During the past few months four of their members have completed a radio skills course run by Sunny Govan Community Radio and have then subsequently started their own radio show focusing on mental health recovery.

Let’s Flourish is a means for members to continue their recovery from mental ill health, by learning new skills, regaining a sense of wellbeing, building confidence and actively participating in their community. This show demonstrates that there is life beyond mental illness and we are using this platform to challenge stigma and share with the world the ground breaking work that is done here at Flourish.

During their most recent show they discussed New Years intentions and the positive influence Flourish House has on our members wellbeing all year round. You can check it out by visiting their mixcloud page -

Their next programme will be broadcast on Monday 24th February between 2-4pm. This show will feature spoken word by one of their valued members, a live interview about Peer to Peer support and contributions by their broadcasters DJ Pete, Stu C, Catherine and Mary Doll. You can listen live by tuning into 103.5FM if you are based in Glasgow or online via Sunny G's website -
