What we're about

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.

Reassurance and fellowship through meeting friendly people with similar problems who have found a way to live happier, healthier lives. There is no fee, to attend Recovery International meetings. You are always welcome. Understanding of your situation. A safe place to express your feelings without being judged. Hope from others who have bettered their lives.
