GROUP GUIDELINES

When joining this group, you agree to: 

  • NO recording or taking photographs of any kind 

 

  • Respectful listening (do not interrupt another speaker)

 

  • Be mindful of how long you speak (do not monopolize the group)

 

  • Refrain from using detailed descriptions or mentioning particular methods of self-harming behaviors (e.g., help avoid triggering others)

 

Lawyers. Teachers. Doctors. Artists.​ Adminstrators.​Your barista. Your accountant. Your company's CEO.​  One out of five of these diverse community professionals has experience​d at least one major episode​ of depression.​ ​​But only some of them will join the peer-led mental health movement that's making a difference!

 

​T​rained as Peer Facilitators​ to lead LiveWell depression support groups, these trailblazers are not only dedicated to bringing easy-to-access and effective depression support to all people in their community, but they also know the value that ​l​iving with a purpose​​ has on their own mental health. In fact, helping others has scientifically proven therapeutic value, and is shown to help reduce both symptoms and relapses of depression.

A LiveWell Manifesto

LiveWell: it’s the radical idea of creating connection and hope in an alienated and despairing world. It's changing the way society tackles depression and suicide, and building a world based on shared responsibility, support, and dignity for the mental health of our communities.

It starts by standing with the depressed, listening to their collective voices, and recognizing wisdom and potential where others see illness and futility.

It thrives on moral imagination: the humility to see the world as it is, and the audacity to imagine the world as it could be. It’s having the ambition to learn at the edge, the wisdom to admit failure, and the courage to start again.

We are, at heart, conservationists. And people of faith. Concerned citizens 

Confuscius.. a search for our roots, which he perceived as grounded in humanity's deepest needs for belonging and communicating.  He had faith in the cuulative power of culture. The fact that traditional ways had lost vitality did not, for him, diminish their potential for regeneration in the future. In fat, C's sense of history was so strong that he saw himself as a cnsevationists reposonsible for for the contiunity of the cultural values and the scial norms that had worked so well for the idealized civilization of the Western Zhou dynasty.

It demands investing as a means, not an end, daring to go where markets have failed and aid has fallen short.

 

It makes capital work for us, not control us.

It makes media work for us, not control us. 

It requires patience and kindness, resilience and grit: a hard-edged hope. It’s leadership that rejects complacency, breaks through bureaucracy, and challenges corruption. Doing what’s right, not what’s easy.

 

LiveWell's Director of Education, Clancy Philbrick, and a group of his high school students.

LiveWell Learning Experiences aim to educate, inspire, and empower teens and young adults to take control of their own mental health self-care!

 

Our creative team of educators and presenters offer tailored programming uniquely designed to appeal to teens and young adults, integrating hip hop, sports, relationships, and more into depression awareness and mental health education.  Our offerings include:

  • Assembly-length programs

  • Break-out sessions and activities

  • Weekly or monthly group sessions

Leading the way at Kreationz by Hand in South Philly:  Travis Atkinson, Robert Melendez, Dennis Waller, Ron Sciocchetti

 

A unique public health program, LiveWell Barbers is a network of volunteer barbers dedicated to being on the front line of depression awareness and suicide prevention in their own communities.

 

In their neighborhood shops, barbers are creating safe spaces for men to talk about mental health, and connecting them with local organizations that provide care and support.
