Participants will learn to live well with what they have. It consists of 10 two-hour classes and is taught by a team of 3 trained mentors who have personal experience at living well with a mental illness.
Participants in this class come away from the course with a binder of hand-out materials and an advance directive, as well as many other tangible resources. They will get a relapse prevention plan to help identify tell-tale feelings, thoughts, behavior, or events that may warn of impending relapse. They will also learn to organize for intervention. Mindfulness exercises help with focusing and calm thinking; participants learn survival skills for working with providers and the general public. Classes are a combination of lecture and interactive exercise material and close with Mindfulness Practice (techniques offered to develop and expand awareness). Each class builds on the one before, therefore attendance is required each week.
