What we're about
Hi and welcome, new friend! Thanks for joining our group. Can't wait to see and laugh with you at our next event.
Here are some things you should know.
WHO WE ARE
SKILLED NOT ILL brings positive people together in lighthearted, fun-first events to teach practical, simple, and easy-to-use mental health skills.
WHAT WE DO
We host in-person events in Philadelphia. Our recurring event called 'Skill & Chill' is a 1-hour hangout where peer leaders use laughter, games, and a structured agenda to teach mental health skills from tried-and-true methodologies like DBT, CBT, and Positive Psychology. We host parties and organize group volunteer outings, too.
WHAT WE DON'T DO
We're here to make you laugh, not bum you out. In fact, super serious topics are strictly forbidden. Everything we do is kept light, positive, and forward-focused. We also do not provide therapy, counseling, psychiatry, support groups, or any other form of clinical mental health services.
You'll fit right in: Everyone is welcome. Whether you have a diagnosis or you're just having a tough time lately, our recurring meetups are just what you need to boost your mood.
Disclaimer: These events may be a helpful addition to but are not intended to be a replacement for professional mental health services, such as counseling/talk therapy or psychiatry. If you are in crisis or are feeling unstable, please contact a licensed mental health professional and do not RSVP until you are ready for social events such as these. Thank you in advance for putting your health and safety first.
