Your food and drinks are paid for, thanks to the support of a generous donor. Just mention that you're attending a meeting when you order. 

 

What is it like to live with voices, visions, wild energy, and extreme states of consciousness?

This group examines what these experiences mean to each of us and how we can learn to accept and live with who we are.  We ask important and often-overlooked questions:  Are there creative and spiritual sides to what we go through?  Do we have to define ourselves as having mental disorders, or are there other ways of understanding?  What can we learn from each other?

This group is expressly for people who have experienced voices, visions, extreme states and unusual beliefs — including the labels of bipolar, schizophrenia, and psychosis.  It is based firmly on a belief in the values of diversity, self-help, mutual respect and understanding.  The atmosphere is inclusive and non-judgmental.  You will be viewed as an expert human being, not a psychiatric diagnosis.

Support people and family members are welcome to accompany the individual who has had these experiences.

This is a peer group centered around social support and belonging, and is not considered therapy or treatment.  People taking medications, not taking medications, and exploring alternatives including coming off medications are all welcome to join us.  Drop-in, no registration needed.

We share our experiences, learn from each other and have fun too!
