Welcome to Mental Health and Wellness - Recovery International (RI).

We are a free self-help program helping people deal with fear, anger, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and other emotional issues. The meetings consist of "Peers Helping Peers" achieve better mental health by using a simple form of cognitive behavioral self-help techniques (Recovery Method).  We learn how to change our thinking.  The leaders are not mental health professionals, but members themselves trained to lead the meetings.  To find out more, we have a list of helpful terms, how examples are given, what happens at a meeting, etc. for you; click on the Pages link under the blue title above.

All of our meetings provide reassurance and fellowship from friendly people with issues similar to yours; people who have found a way to live happier, healthier lives by using the Recovery Tools.

Regular meetings in the Sacramento, CA Area, last from 1.5 - 2 hours, and are open to everyone 18 years of age and older.  RI Discovery meetings use a condensed format and last 1.25 hours.  There is no charge to attend any meeting; we pass a basket for voluntary contributions.  We are a non-profit organization headquartered in Chicago.  You can also visit our website at for more information on Recovery's tools, 4 step example process, and stories of hope.

The meetings repeat each week at the same time and location. An RSVP is NOT required to attend.  It is not a requirement to attend a newcomer meeting before attending any meetings.
