What we're about
The Dubai Involvement Group is a fortnightly group which is inclusive to all those who have considered themselves to have suffered from, or to be suffering from, psychological or mental distress of any kind.
The group, which will be facilitated by a Consultant Psychiatrist, will aim to provide a nurturing, supportive and learning environment to facilitate recovery and well-being. Learning through the experience of others is the best way of learning to live a fulfilling life.
There will be a list of topics listed to cover the next 6 months. You are welcome to join in and be part of the group. You can either sit and listen, or contribute with your experience. If it may be helpful for you to bring a partner or a friend, then please do so. If you are afraid of coming, please contact one of the volunteers and we can meet you beforehand.
The group is not there to provide any kind of treatment to individuals with mental illness and is only there for experiential learning. We will aim to provide refreshments. There is no cost associated with this group and it is entirely run by volunteers. We are indebted to the venue provider for their kindness in providing the venue, and also to the “Out of the Blues” group under whose umbrella this group has formed.
We will post an initial topic for the first session. After that we will be guided by what people want.
