The Big Feels Club

Join other sensitive cats as we ask: how do you make and grow great friendships as a fully adult human being?

Produced by the City of Sydney

During Mental Health Month, Green Square Library is hosting The Big Feels Club.

Ever feel like you’re all alone, even when you’re surrounded by friends?

If you’re a sensitive cat, it’s easy to feel like you’re doing life ‘wrong’. One of the trickiest issues is navigating the world of making and growing friendships as an adult.

When you’re sad or scared a lot of the time, having 1 or 2 deep, supportive friendships is vital to your wellbeing. But how do you nurture these relationships, beyond the superficial? How do you take those tiny risks to become better friends with your existing friends? And how do you ‘give back’ to people who help you through tough times?

Join us for an interactive evening to chat about life, feelings, and finding your tribe.

This isn’t a therapy session. There’s no unpacking your darkest secrets. It’s more like a philosophy tutorial. Big Feels isn’t a mental health service and doesn’t provide counselling.

The Big Feels Club
This Melbourne-based initiative is for anyone trying to make sense of the messiness of being human. Real content about mental health, made by people who’ve been there. Join the club.
