I am suspending all support groups till next year. There is lack of interest and attendence. I may be changing the groups to another location outside of the hospital. This may be a triggering factor for some especially those just discharged from the hospital.
we may start a recovery study using Changes that Heal by Henry Cloud. This ministry is not a church but is faith based in that God will never be taken out of my recovery story for mental health. He will always be the one guiding this ministry to walk with my peers.
It was mentioned to me that others may thing this a church and this keeps them from coming to the support groups. The support group is called mental health wellness support group. That does not sound like we will be preaching, praying and worshiping. Although that is in my heart always. We allow others to talk of their faith and their spirituality. Spirituality is different than a religion. We all need to connect to our spirituality and who we are as a person.
Dove Support Ministry Inc. is having a fundraiser on December 15th to help raise the funds to send our application for the 501c3. More will be posted on this event.
Things are moving.
