👂My main goal for 2022 is to encourage more reflective thinking about ‘fix it’ culture. How often do we forgo just listening to someone, instead responding with (well-intentioned) advice? Being listened to is hugely validating for #MentalWellbeing & often all that’s needed!

👏 Brilliant! #BrewMonday - what a fantastic initiative, @samaritans 🚫🔵 ➡️ ✅☕️ We should never be too busy to sit and catch up. It’s what makes us human!
There, we said it, Blue Monday is a load of...*coughs* biscuits anyone? 👀🍪 So we say out with the blue and in with the brew! Today on #BrewMonday, we’re reminding everyone to reach out for a cuppa and a catch-up with the people you care about ☕

One really important thing I saw today on suicide prevention training was this from @MWM_BRCT “It is so vital we don’t view other peoples difficulties through our own experiences” @PAPYRUS_tweets @BRFCTrust #WeAreTogether

💙Feel very fortunate to receiving fantastic SP-EAK training today with @PAPYRUS_tweets - highly recommended to everyone. Papyrus are amazing! More people need to hear about what they do and how the simplest of actions can make the biggest of differences. papyrus-uk.org/hopeline

💙 If you do one thing today, listen to someone. Really stop. Try and understand them, without interruption. Often it’s the most powerful way to support someone you care about. Feeling understood is the key.

👏 Amazing Tom! We’ll take rain check on lunch today and instead get you up to Ewood real soon! 🔵⚪️ Love the #poemaday2022 challenge - you’re smashing it! Erm…I can’t be alone in thinking a poem about a dappled-skin dragon who forgot how to breathe fire should on the list! 😉
Props to Enheduanna, the O.G. of poetry. Also, it's National 'Take A Poet To Lunch Day'. Any Takers? 📜✍️ Welcome to #day6 of my #poemaday2022 challenge 🤟 Feel welcome to join me or comment ideas for tomorrow's poem! #poetry #poem #tomfoolery #enheduanna #takeapoettolunchday

👇 Sure there are many deserving recipients out there. Drop the team a message.
🚨 We’re delighted to be able to give away some #Rovers half season tickets. We want these to go to people who genuinely can’t afford to go & would make use of them. If you know of anyone who would like to go but can’t afford (adult and child together if possible), reply/DM!

… and yes, I do see the irony of this tweet 😀 But it goes without saying, if you ever need someone to listen, use the hashtag #RoversLetsTalk (or DM me) - being able to connect with one another is part of what makes this club so fantastic. 🔵⚪️ #TalkingAlwaysMakesMeFeelBetter
