We typically get together on Sunday afternoon about twice a month and chat at a park in Santa Clara. This is an informal group not facilitated by a Licensed mental health professional, just peer run. If this sounds like a meetup you would like to attend, please join.
Mental illness is often a very isolating experience. This group is meant to be a safe, judgment-free space for those who experience depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress. Hopefully we can share, connect and learn with/from each other.
We can do this by sharing what's going on in our recovery process and/or just listening and learning from others. We don't have to be alone in this process. We are all worthy, good enough, and can be loved and accepted just as we are.
