The From Recovery to Discovery Mental Health Peer Support Group is open to anyone affected, either directly or indirectly, by any type of mental illness.
Thursday, August 25, 2016, 6:30 pm
This week’s meeting will be devoted to exploring the topic of Community Contributions
This week, we will be discussing how we get involved (or would like to get involved) in our community. This could be in the form of work, volunteering, activism, and being a part of various groups and initiatives. We invite you to bring your own stories of how you got involved in various ways, how it made you feel, and how it impacted your mental health. Or, if you would like to get involved in the future, feel free to come with some ideas, and to learn from your peers!
Below are some questions we will use to guide the discussion:
1) In what ways do you get involved in your community - or would you like to get involved?
2) How does contributing in various ways impact your own mental health
3) What do you perceive as the main benefits of contributing to causes in your community?
4) How does being a part of something bigger than ourselves effect our relationship with our own struggles?
5) How has being involved in your community made your feel?
6) What are some barriers to getting involved? How might we address them?

About the From Recovery to Discovery Mental Health Peer Support Group
The From Recovery to Discovery (FR2D) Mental Health Peer Support Group is special because it moves beyond the expectation of simply existing with minimal symptoms of mental illness. Our message is that we all have the opportunity to manifest our strengths, to recover a sense of empowerment, and to live with meaning and purpose. Through the mutual sharing of our own wisdom and experience, we are reminded to reach for hope and fulfillment in our lives, and to help one another realize our potential.
The FR2D Mental Health Peer Support Group is open to anyone living with any type of mental illness or mental health problem. There is no cost to attend. The meeting format generally involves an interactive presentation on topics of interest to the group in the first hour, and a group discussion during the second hour.
