Attendee Cornwall Faith & Mental Health Day

"I cannot tell you how much your exhibition and your talk touched me today... tears were streaming and I cannot imagine the courage it took you to share your stories in that way! I honestly don't know how you did it! Thank you so much for your bravery, strength, composure, honesty and passion in sharing as you did... you held yourselves with a great deal of grace and confidence today (even if you didn't feel like that inside!) You should be incredibly proud of yourselves - you moved mountains today! I pray that it helps many more people and brings awareness and compassion, support and safety to all those who need it so desperately."

Jane Yeomans Project Manager, Transformation Cornwall

"I cannot speak highly enough of the talk delivered by Stacie and Hayley of Quiet Connections, responses to their recently delivered talk included ‘you couldn’t hear a pin drop’; ‘I knew it was going to be powerful but boy….’; ‘so inspired and moved by you two incredible souls’ were just some of the comments we had back. But more than just on the day, Hayley and Stacie had real impact– their talk remained on people’s hearts, minds and actions and was truly crammed with ideas worth spreading."

Attendee Cornwall Business Fair

"I heard you speak at the Cornwall Business Fair today and I was genuinely touched by your words and relate totally to the imposter syndrome. Something I know only too well. I just wanted to thank you for sharing."

Topics we can speak about at your event

We’ll be delighted to tailor-make a talk for your organisation or event, delivered by a team member with lived experience of these challenges as well as professional knowledge to share, including;
  • Our personal stories, and/or examples from the people we’re supporting (what they wish you knew);
  • What we’re doing at Quiet Connections and how we know what we know;
  • Why this is such an important issue for you to know about and what it will mean for your family/business/community;
  • The impact that feeling socially anxious, shy and not good enough can have on people’s lives and wider society, including related statistics;
  • Unexpected barriers to fully participating in life for someone feeling socially anxious and how we can improve accessibility;
  • Signs to look out for and how you can help and signpost;
  • Benefits of creativity for easing anxiety, processing thoughts and feelings, self-expression and connecting with others.
