I am still looking for space to start having support group meetings on the North/ Southeast side. Stay tuned. The group is not only for consumers of bipolar but for people in our support system as well. Positive support people. I say that because I know I can sometimes bring my own self down. I am my worst enemy at times, that’s why I have to evaluate relationships, keep the positive and let the rope go of the negative that is causing me to sink.
Anyone interested in attending A Mental Health Seminar?
The goal is to bring together consumers like us with bipolar and other mood disorders together with people who are in our lives, but don’t understand what it is like for us and we don’t understand what it is like for them to watch what we go through feeling the way they feel. They might be angry, hurt or feel helpless to help us.
A mental health professional will there to answer questions. I will be giving a brief history of my life with bipolar (maybe, if I don’t chicken out, and hopefully some of you will share as well). Education brings understanding and together it gives us the support we need and the answers our loved ones need.
Slated for early October. More information to follow. I need to get a general idea how many people are interested in attending so I can know what room size to reserve.
Love to all
