What Are NNC Circles?
NNC Circles connect creatives with creatives. We create safe, non-judgmental, non-competitive and confidential spaces to share stories, feelings, experience and advice to help whatever you might be going through, be just that little bit easier.
Update: September 2021 – After a successful pilot program we’re now opening to more creatives with additional Circles.

Mental Health Support & Education
Each monthly session brings participants together in groups of 8-10 people. Sessions typically cover:
Circle check-in using the ‘wheel of life’
Introduction to mental health topic by facilitators
Action planning for the month ahead
Minimum 6 Month Commitment
This is a long-term commitment that you’ll need to factor in before you sign up. In order for the process to have a lasting benefit you need to make sure you can make the sessions and be open and honest in your reflections and feedback. Circles are all about giving and receiving with peers. Creating a group that can trust each other to be there when needed. We initially ask for 6 months of commitment to your group. How long the group remains after that will be up to you.

Who Are Circles For?
Never Not Creative Circles are best suited for creatives who are reacting to mental health challenges. They will provide a supportive community for anyone experiencing anxiety or struggling with life’s challenges. They’re an opportunity to share stories and learn practical skills to navigate through tough times. Facilitated by trained Facilitators, each Circle provides lifestyle tips from resources designed by health professionals.
If your mental health challenges are more serious, we may recommend that you join groups or seek help from professionals trained in treating more acute mental illness.
