HWBE Adult Mental Health Recovery Group

Join Our Adult Mental Health Education Group: Empower Your Recovery Journey

Are you on the path to recovery from mental illness and ready to make positive changes? Our 10-week peer mental health education program is designed just for you. This weekly series is tailored to adults (18+) and focuses on enhancing your mental health through targeted thinking patterns and effective coping strategies.

These weekly sessions provide an opportunity to focus on yourself, away from the hustle and bustle and the negativity in the news. It’s a safe space shared with others facing similar situations, where you can express sadness, frustration, happiness, or excitement without fear of judgment. Here, we recognize, acknowledge and validate all feelings

At HWBE, we create supportive environments where individuals feel comfortable discussing their struggles and seeking help. We help individuals identify their positive characteristics and personal values, and discover creative ways to enhance and promote these qualities in their lives by boosting self-esteem and self-love.

Take the next step in your recovery journey with our Adult Mental Health Education Group. Embrace the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive in a supportive community.

Why Mental Health Education Matters

Education Reduces Stigma:

Education helps to dispel myths and misconceptions about mental illnesses, therefore reducing stigma. It helps people to understand that mental health conditions are common, treatable and therefore people are more likely to seek help without feeling ashamed or judged.

Education Promotes Awareness:

Educating on the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders helps individuals recognise when someone they know may be struggling and encourages them to seek appropriate support. It also helps them to identify early symptoms in themselves.

Education Builds Coping Skills:

Education equips individuals with coping strategies and resilience-building techniques to manage stress, improve emotional well-being and maintain good mental health. These skills empower individuals to navigate challenging times more effectively.

Education Empowers:

It helps people understand the different areas in their lives that positively and negatively affect their mental health. This includes why they feel the way about themselves, how chemicals react in their bodies, and how they improve or lessen these outside influences. This assists them to gain power and take an active role in creating and changing theses influences in their own lives.
