Structured 90-minute support group run by peers who have been trained by NAMI.

Tuesday:

1pm-1:50 pm: Eight Dimensions of Wellness

The concept of the eight dimensions of wellness (physical, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, financial, environmental, social, and occupational) has been around for a while. We explore them in a course of nine weeks (the first meeting is an introduction). If you miss no more than two groups, you will receive a certificate of completion.

Wednesday:

10am--10:50am: Our Best Supporter

Sometimes our best support is wordless. Do you love animals? Have one as a companion, thinking about getting one, or grieving a loss? (In the interest of not triggering others, no explicit stories of animal cruelty, please.)

 

11am-11:50am:  LGBTQ 

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and all queer folks and queer allies are welcome here! Represent some pride!

 

 12-12:50pm:  Dual Recovery Anonymous 

A 12-Step fellowship for those with both substance use issues and mental health diagnoses in their lives.

 

2 pm-2:50 pm:  Stress and Frustration for People of Color

Tired of always being the educator in the room? Need to talk about something in a place where we’ll understand what you’re going through? (Although we recognize and appreciate our white allies, please respect this as safe space for people of color to be with each other for support.)

Thursday:

10:00am-10:50am: Self-Care During COVID-19

Designed by the Mary Ellen Copeland Center, this is a cycle of five discussions on how best to bring the principles of WRAP to quarantine.

 

12-12:50pm: Dual Recovery Anonymous 

A 12-Step fellowship for those with both substance use issues and mental health diagnoses in their lives.

2:30 pm--3:20pm: Making Connections

This is a different type of peer support; a nice way to network and get to know peers very well.
