About the From Recovery to Discovery Mental Health Peer Support Group

The From Recovery to Discovery Mental Health Peer Support Group is special because it moves beyond the expectation of simply existing with minimal symptoms of mental illness.  Our message is that we all have the opportunity to manifest our strengths, to recover a sense of empowerment, and to live with meaning and purpose.  Through the mutual sharing of our own wisdom and experience, we are reminded to reach for hope and fulfillment in our lives, and to help one another realize our potential.

The From Recovery to Discovery Mental Health Peer Support Group is open to anyone living with any type of mental illness or mental health problem. There is no cost to attend.  The meeting format generally involves an interactive presentation on a topic of interest to the group in the first hour, and a peer support discussion during the second hour.
