ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
DAILY.  WEEKLY.  WHENEVER YOU WANT IT. 
CONFIDENTIAL.  NO INSURANCE OR REFERRAL NEEDED.
JUST WALK IN.  ALWAYS FREE.

Although each group is led by a trained facilitator, all LiveWell meetings function as peer-to-peer psychoeducational support groups.  We do not provide professional counseling or emergency mental health treatment.

LiveWell Support Group FAQ's

How do I know if LiveWell is right for ME?

 
A LiveWell support group is right for you if you are 19+ and can identify with any of the below:​
  • Experience mild to serious depression
  • Experience persistent and/or recurring bouts of depression
  • Find it uncomfortable or have a difficult time talking about depression​
  • Try to hide depression from others (because of shame and/or fear of discrimination) 
  • Have a tendency to socially withdrawal or isolate
  • You're feeling well, but value the ongoing support of others for maintaining your own mental health care and/or reducing relapses of depression
When a LiveWell group may NOT be right for you:​ 
  • If you are experiencing a serious bout of clinical depression, it is important that you seek the help of a qualified mental health professional in your area.
  • If you are afraid of harming yourself (or others), please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. We do not provide emergency mental health support.

Do I have to register or sign up?

No. LiveWell support groups are always open to the public, and walk-ins are welcome.

Are the groups really free?

Yes. (Donations to our nonprofit are always appreciated!)

Can I attend different groups on different days?

Yes. We know that many people want and need daily support from their peers and community. 

What happens at a group meeting?

All LiveWell support groups follow the same format:

  • A brief introduction to the LiveWell Program, peers, and weekly topic (e.g., one of the ten LiveWell Strategies)

  • A topic or strategy-related activity 

  • Group reflection/discussion, including how you can apply lessons learned from the activity to better monitor and manage your own moods.

Won't it be depressing to go to a depression support group?

No. In fact, people are often surprised to discover how positive and even uplifting the LiveWell groups can be!

 

Do I have to talk to people?

No one is ever required to speak, nor will they be prompted to do so. But we always offer a safe, friendly, and supportive environment.

How is confidentiality ensured?

All peers are introduced on a first-name-only basis; and commit weekly to our group promise of confidentiality.
