Welcome to Mental Health and Wellness - Recovery International (RI).
We are a 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, etc. for you; click on the Pages link below the blue title.
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.
