ONE-TO-ONE CAREGIVER PEER SUPPORT
Recognizing that self-care is the “oxygen mask” for the mental illness caregiver, Courage to Caregivers is accepting registrations for volunteers and participants for its One-to-One Caregiver Peer Support program.
The program connects caregivers with volunteers who have experience caring for someone with a mental illness. The purpose of the program is to provide participants with support and resources to help them take care of themselves both physically and emotionally so they are better able to take care of someone else.
BREATHING MEDITATION CLASSES
We know that meditation allows you to better manage day-to-day and critical stressful situations. We have found that utilizing proper breathing techniques is vital to the regulation of our stress levels.

We want you to know, as a caregiver, you are not alone.
Our support groups are co-facilitated by both a counselor or social worker as well as a trained peer specialist who has experience caring for a loved one with mental illness.
The goals for our support groups include reinforcing a variety of skills that seek to build resilience and empower the mental illness caregiver as well as establish a caring community.
