The best bit is, you are invited.
Over a cuppa and some cake from Knit and Nibble, I will be talking about the story behind Knit and Nibble and how one stitch at a time helped me to knit myself back together after depression.
It's a story of love, adversity, stitches, self discovery and what life is like when faced with an illness. I
t won't be a doom and gloom afternoon ... I promise a time of laughter, anecdotes, the reality of depression and how I came through the other side, one stitch at a time.
They say laughter is the best medicine, combine that with knitting and honesty about one's feelings and we have a great potion for regaining self-worth to overcome depression.

Based in Crouch End and Tottenham, Open Door is a local charity dedicated to improving the mental health and emotional well-being of young people in their transition from childhood to adulthood. Over the past forty three years thousands of young people have turned to Open Door with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, self-harm, abuse, bullying, drug and alcohol misuse and more recently problematic internet use and gender identity issues.
Open Door delivers a range of effective psychological interventions within welcoming community based settings to young people aged 12-24. It also offers a specialist support service for parents and carers facing the particular challenges of parenting teenagers. Each year, Open Door works with more than 450 young people, parents and carers and offers around 5,000 appointments.
More and more young people are turning to Open Door for help and they are struggling to meet demand within limited resources. Open Door’s waiting list seldom falls below 180 and young people are having to wait too long for the support they desperately need. Your donation - small or large - will enable Open Door to help more young people more quickly.
“Rates of mental ill health, stress and unhappiness are rising in teenagers and young adults. We need to keep the door open for them and welcome your support”. (Julia Britton, CEO, Open Door)
