The Current Affairs Group is an interactive group where all opinions are respected and participation by group members is welcomed.
We meet monthly to discuss issues of International, National & Local interest. Topics covered include recent elections, immigration, various NHS issues, gender inequality, and of course Brexit, to name but a few. Our group is of a size to attract an interesting exchange of views and of a number to enable each member to have their say if they so wish. We meet in a friendly atmosphere, rather than an aggressive debating one and learn from each other, all contributions and opinions of members being valued.

This is the findings of our February deliberations.

Our examination of Mental Health issues and our modern society was a many faceted one. As are their origins and their treatments of. Amongst other factors it was observed that the NHS was lacking a universal approach to their obligation to provide care, given that NHS Trusts have a degree of independence; as are Local Authorities. Treatments of recognised Mental issues with pharmaceutical products may well be successful in many instances but, in the long term, falling back on their use to supress symptoms may be counter productive.
Counselling by therapists focused on individuals, rather than the short term expediency of medication.
However there was also a recognition of the possible affects of modern society, and consequent lifestyle, having a negative affect on susceptible individuals.

 If you are interested in current affairs and would like to attend a trial Current Affairs Group Meeting use the link on the right of this page to send me an email. While the number of members at each meeting is governed by the size of the venue there is some room for more members.
