We foster an atmosphere of acceptance where individuals feel valued and can grow in self-worth, dignity and self-respect. The drop-in program increases knowledge of community resources, allows individuals to learn from one another and provides a safe space where social and recreational activities can be experienced and enjoyed. Our program combats depression, isolation and loneliness while building self-esteem so participants can work towards wellness and recovery. This program is a “peer-support” program, staffed by individuals with their own lived mental health experiences.
Some of our activities include crafts, making holiday ornaments, making cards for family and paint nights. One of our most popular activities has been karaoke. In the summer months, we typically try to meet at a local park and enjoy a BBQ. We also have a meal program that has met in person, and currently as a “drive-by” to promote safety and wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
