Mental Health Support Group
Glencairn Mental Health Support Group provides peer-to-peer support for those struggling with or who have struggled with some form of mental health challenge. We offer hope and a listening ear to those travelling on their journey toward better mental health. This journey can be a result of diagnosed mental illness, chronic physical illness and pain, or discouragement from pandemic fatigue. We also invite the support people who walk beside their loved ones.
Meeting Times: Mental Health Support Group will meet weekly again starting on Monday, January 30, 2023 from 7–8:30 PM.
More about Glencairn Mental Health Support Group
Our group exists for individuals with mental health challenges to provide a safe place:
- For open and honest communication
- To express hurts, wants and successes, highs and lows
- To accept, care, listen and walk beside each other
- To erase stigma
- To share coping mechanisms
- To discover the fellowship in our commonality
“that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”2 Corinthians 1:4b (NIV)
Note: This group is not meant to be a replacement for professional counselling, therapy, and medical treatment. We are here to support those efforts and encourage you as you use them.
Throughout the pandemic and our “Hope for Mental Health” message series, we heard personal stories from those here at Glencairn Church. They shared a glimpse of their experiences with depression, anxiety, addiction, and other struggles, and their journeys of how they came to find hope in Christ. We’ve shared them here, and put together a list of support resources that may help you or someone you care about.
