Mental Health Support // Hannah
Hannah is working to improve her local community and started a support group for locals living with serious mental illnesses.
“I successfully started a support group for adults in my community living with severe mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar, schizo-affective disorder, depression, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, etc.) I began the support group by expressing my interest in the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) who were able to put me through training. From there, I began advertising with a co-facilitator and now lead a group that meets every Tuesday in my local community in Philadelphia.
The group has completely exceeded my expectations. Our members are thoughtful, respectful, caring, and have created a wonderfully safe and confidential space for one another.”
In exchange for Hannah’s support for her local community, Electric Forest and Hannah will collaborate on dedicated a tree in Sherwood Forest to mental health awareness as a symbol rejecting stigmas associated with mental illnesses. This tree will promote actively seeking support in times of emotional hardship.
