Mental Health Group Going Well


I am really enjoying a new mental health group that I am attending at my local Peer Support Centre.  We are doing stuff on medications, jobs and more.  Today we were doing stuff on getting a job.  I am not planning on getting a job any time soon.  I have never worked outside the home.  I’ve always been a stay-at-home-mom.  I would like to volunteer somewhere.  I would love to do something regarding raising awareness and fighting the stigma of BPD.  We were told today by the group facilitator to pretend that we are going for a job.  We can do mock interviews and make up resumes.  I have one done up already that I did for a previous group.  It lists all of the things I’ve learned about BPD, such as my DBT program, along with doing presentations at the Centre, and running my BPD Discussion/Support Group.  It also lists a few other things that are relevant.

I always love new opportunities to be creative and help others.  This group is very good for me.  It really helps with my self-esteem.

Just thought I would update you on what happened at Group today.  It is freezing where I live.  I hope the weather is not too bad where you are.  Where’s Spring?  Till next time,

— Joyce.

  1. I’m glad you’re enjoying group. We’re heading into Winter soon, which strangely enough, I prefer to Summer. 🙂
