The Friendly Harbor is thrilled to be partnering with other community agencies to provide the best possible resources for people in recovery or seeking recovery from mental health and substance use challenges. Some of the agencies we are working with to provide new mental health and substance use recovery groups include Young People in Recovery’s All Recovery Group, Crossroads SMART Recovery Group, NAMI Southeast Colorado Peer to Peer support groups, and the PCA Clubhouse  (https://www.embarkreco.com/events). Below is a calendar of our pre-COVID-19 support groups and events.  We are working on getting all of these groups and more up and running virtually, but the following are the ones that are ready to go.  We hope you will join the groups.  If you have difficulty making the online connections, please call the group facilitator well ahead of the scheduled group.

 

In addition to offering support groups, you can arrange to meet virtually, just talk on the phone, or make an appointment for a COVID-safe face-to-face meeting with one of our peer specialists by calling our Warm Line (719-621-7815).  Or maybe you just want some entertainment to break the monotony of Safer at Home.  Try one of these links:

 The Hilarious World of Depression is funny, serious, and will assure you that you are not alone. (Click here to visit the website)

The next link was designed by and for adolescents, but it offers some fine stuff for adults as well. https://www.ppchp.org/beyond-the-curve/
