Danforth Mental Wellness group to start weekly meetings

The Danforth Mental Wellness group will meet weekly at Neighbourhood Link on Danforth Avenue starting on Jan. 17.

A new free mental wellness group will start meetings later this month on Danforth Avenue.

The peer-to-peer support group, Danforth Mental Wellness, will begin holding meetings starting on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m.

The one-hour meetings will be held at Neighbourhood Link Support Services, 3036 Danforth Ave., just west of Victoria Park Avenue.

The Danforth group is an extension of the Beaches Mental Wellness group, and will run in the same fashion.

The Beaches group meets Tuesdays from 7 to 8 p.m.

It is a peer-to-peer support group for those who have, or support someone, with a mental wellness challenge.

Each week the group will meet to allow people to share with other like-minded people what is troubling them, to hear what solutions have worked well for others, and to understand that they are not alone.

Both the Danforth group and the Beaches group operate at no cost to members through the generosity of donated meeting spaces.

The Beaches group meets at Community Centre 55, 97 Main St., and the Danforth group at the Neighbourhood Link location.

Peer facilitators ensure the groups meet on a weekly basis. Those facilitators are members who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, their own mental wellness issues.
