Jon David Welland writes about the From Recovery to Discovery Peer Support Group

Posted on June 7th by Jon David Welland (pictured):



Last week I sat in on the Schizophrenia Society's Peer Support group. There, a drama instructor [Courtney Siebring] guided the members through a series of exercises to express, through non-verbal communication, their feelings regarding mental illness, and how their illness affects their lives and their place in society as a whole. In the final exercise, each member spontaneously played a part in a powerful dramatic scene that explored each individuals role in their shared situation and experiences. I made a series of quick sketches of the proceedings and intend to turn each one into a finished piece.
