1 October Weekly Peer Support Group: Mondays, 6-7:30 PM
Beginning Monday, Dec. 2: A new, weekly support group led by survivors trained in peer support for anyone affected by 1 October
*PLEASE NOTE: This group is now online and accessible to anyone impacted by 1 October.*
If you were affected by 1 October, you are invited to join this new peer support group happening weekly, on Monday evenings from 6-7:30 p.m.
This is a free, peer-led NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Connection Route 91 Support Group and is specifically for any adult who has been impacted by 1 October. NAMI support groups are unique because they follow a structured model and are led by trained volunteers who’ve been there. The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community for the opportunity to gain hope and feel a sense of connection. Members will benefit from other’s experiences and discover their own inner strength in a non-judgmental space.
This NAMI Connection Support Group is specifically for those impacted by Route 91 and will help you:
- Aim for better coping skills
- Find strength in sharing experiences
- Not judge anyone’s pain
- Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
- Embrace humor as healthy
- Accept that we cannot solve every problem
- Expect a better future in a realistic way
