    Story

    "During my Frazzled book tour and the original Sane New World shows, I found that so many people wanted to talk, reach out and feel supported. I could really see the need for a space where people could connect with their peers and talk honestly about the overwhelming stresses of modern life. This is why we’re setting up the Frazzled Cafe."
    Ruby Wax, OBE (Founder and Patron of 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.

    Whenever we can be more open about our mental health it helps lessen the overall prejudice and we hope that the Frazzled Cafe can also be a positive forum to do that.

    We are already running Frazzled Cafes in London and Brighton and have held pilots in several other cities to great success. Feedback has been fantastic thus far and we want to launch on a wider scale this year to try and reach as many people as possible.

    Frazzled Cafe is a not for profit enterprise and will shortly be a registered charity. We do not charge for attendance and never will, but we do need help to cover our costs. Any donations are greatly appreciated and go directly into running and growing Frazzled Cafe across the UK.
