Robbie Manning lead a ceramics workshop for service users at the Leeson Centre in July 2014.
“I’ve never done anything like this before, but not scary and team made us feel very comfortable.”
“Robbie, the artist, was very down to earth and friendly and took time to give encouragement to everyone.”
“Very relaxed group and really enjoyed it. Now I’m looking forward to painting what I’ve made.”
“Thanks so much to you all, especially Robbie for being so knowledgeable and approachable with the service users.”

The Leeson Centre was one of several PSS Wellbeing Centres in South Liverpool and Liverpool City Centre. It provided recovery-focused mental health support to people experiencing the challenges of living with anxiety, depression and other forms of emotional distress.*
PSS believe that everyone is creative and that creativity can play a powerful role in a person’s mental health and wellbeing; individuals are invited to attend craft courses to learn new techniques, strategies and skills with support from others.
* The Leeson Centre sadly closed in 2017 due to funding cuts.
