Lastly, Time-Specific Events listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  Warmlines and places east of Oregon’s time zone tend to start earlier (e.g. 4am in Oregon is 7am in New York).

Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Trauma – Survivor-Led Peer Support Groups @ online via zoom
Jan 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

What we’re about

Let’s get together and support each other in our journey through and past abuse of any form. All survivors are welcome. We are a caring group who will listen to and affirm one another, providing vital peer support. You are invited to join us as we share our experiences of surviving and managing past and/or current abuse.

This participant list and all messages/discussions are private and secure. They are only accessible to the members of this group. We are open and inclusive to all survivors of any type of abuse or trauma. There are several ways to get involved and we look forward to meeting with you.

Our Coffee and Conversation meetup is an casual and open forum where you are welcome to chat about what is happening in your life, or just sit back and listen to what others are saying and possibly relate to something you hear. We meet at various comfy rooms at Taborspace in SE PDX. Once a month we meet in Room 04 with a play space for your children to attend with you (refer to comments on that week’s Meetup for room specifics). We provide coffee, tea, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. Many members find strong relationships when they connect through our online community and by meeting with each other one-on-one.

SCARS Healing Garden meetups are a time to be active with our bodies and engage our minds in healthful and productive ways. The SCARS Community Healing Garden is located in the PCC Rock Creek Learning Garden where I teach beginner’s gardening workshops on various Fridays throughout the year. Childcare is not available during the gardening classes.

Other Survivor-led meetings include DV Advocacy training, Speakers’ Workshops, and Survivor Impact Panels. Check out the Meetup group calendar for more information!

Toll-Free Parent Warmline: 1-833-REACH-OR / 1-833-732-2467

Weekdays 12pm-7pm PST except holidays

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

SLOP – Suic. Language of Pain – Support Group with Angel Prater at Folktime – Thursdays @ Online via Zoom

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

Jan 24 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

What we’re about

Let’s get together and support each other in our journey through and past abuse of any form. All survivors are welcome. We are a caring group who will listen to and affirm one another, providing vital peer support. You are invited to join us as we share our experiences of surviving and managing past and/or current abuse.

This participant list and all messages/discussions are private and secure. They are only accessible to the members of this group. We are open and inclusive to all survivors of any type of abuse or trauma. There are several ways to get involved and we look forward to meeting with you.

Our Coffee and Conversation meetup is an casual and open forum where you are welcome to chat about what is happening in your life, or just sit back and listen to what others are saying and possibly relate to something you hear. We meet at various comfy rooms at Taborspace in SE PDX. Once a month we meet in Room 04 with a play space for your children to attend with you (refer to comments on that week’s Meetup for room specifics). We provide coffee, tea, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. Many members find strong relationships when they connect through our online community and by meeting with each other one-on-one.

SCARS Healing Garden meetups are a time to be active with our bodies and engage our minds in healthful and productive ways. The SCARS Community Healing Garden is located in the PCC Rock Creek Learning Garden where I teach beginner’s gardening workshops on various Fridays throughout the year. Childcare is not available during the gardening classes.

Other Survivor-led meetings include DV Advocacy training, Speakers’ Workshops, and Survivor Impact Panels. Check out the Meetup group calendar for more information!

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 30 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.

  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Trauma – Survivor-Led Peer Support Groups @ online via zoom
Jan 31 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

What we’re about

Let’s get together and support each other in our journey through and past abuse of any form. All survivors are welcome. We are a caring group who will listen to and affirm one another, providing vital peer support. You are invited to join us as we share our experiences of surviving and managing past and/or current abuse.

This participant list and all messages/discussions are private and secure. They are only accessible to the members of this group. We are open and inclusive to all survivors of any type of abuse or trauma. There are several ways to get involved and we look forward to meeting with you.

Our Coffee and Conversation meetup is an casual and open forum where you are welcome to chat about what is happening in your life, or just sit back and listen to what others are saying and possibly relate to something you hear. We meet at various comfy rooms at Taborspace in SE PDX. Once a month we meet in Room 04 with a play space for your children to attend with you (refer to comments on that week’s Meetup for room specifics). We provide coffee, tea, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. Many members find strong relationships when they connect through our online community and by meeting with each other one-on-one.

SCARS Healing Garden meetups are a time to be active with our bodies and engage our minds in healthful and productive ways. The SCARS Community Healing Garden is located in the PCC Rock Creek Learning Garden where I teach beginner’s gardening workshops on various Fridays throughout the year. Childcare is not available during the gardening classes.

Other Survivor-led meetings include DV Advocacy training, Speakers’ Workshops, and Survivor Impact Panels. Check out the Meetup group calendar for more information!

Weekdays 12pm-7pm PST except holidays

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Feb 5 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Trauma – Survivor-Led Peer Support Groups @ online via zoom
Feb 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

What we’re about

Let’s get together and support each other in our journey through and past abuse of any form. All survivors are welcome. We are a caring group who will listen to and affirm one another, providing vital peer support. You are invited to join us as we share our experiences of surviving and managing past and/or current abuse.

This participant list and all messages/discussions are private and secure. They are only accessible to the members of this group. We are open and inclusive to all survivors of any type of abuse or trauma. There are several ways to get involved and we look forward to meeting with you.

Our Coffee and Conversation meetup is an casual and open forum where you are welcome to chat about what is happening in your life, or just sit back and listen to what others are saying and possibly relate to something you hear. We meet at various comfy rooms at Taborspace in SE PDX. Once a month we meet in Room 04 with a play space for your children to attend with you (refer to comments on that week’s Meetup for room specifics). We provide coffee, tea, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. Many members find strong relationships when they connect through our online community and by meeting with each other one-on-one.

SCARS Healing Garden meetups are a time to be active with our bodies and engage our minds in healthful and productive ways. The SCARS Community Healing Garden is located in the PCC Rock Creek Learning Garden where I teach beginner’s gardening workshops on various Fridays throughout the year. Childcare is not available during the gardening classes.

Other Survivor-led meetings include DV Advocacy training, Speakers’ Workshops, and Survivor Impact Panels. Check out the Meetup group calendar for more information!

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Feb 11 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

SLOP – Suic. Language of Pain – Support Group with Angel Prater at Folktime – Thursdays @ Online via Zoom

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

Weekdays 12pm-7pm PST except holidays

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Trauma – Survivor-Led Peer Support Groups @ online via zoom
Feb 17 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

What we’re about

Let’s get together and support each other in our journey through and past abuse of any form. All survivors are welcome. We are a caring group who will listen to and affirm one another, providing vital peer support. You are invited to join us as we share our experiences of surviving and managing past and/or current abuse.

This participant list and all messages/discussions are private and secure. They are only accessible to the members of this group. We are open and inclusive to all survivors of any type of abuse or trauma. There are several ways to get involved and we look forward to meeting with you.

Our Coffee and Conversation meetup is an casual and open forum where you are welcome to chat about what is happening in your life, or just sit back and listen to what others are saying and possibly relate to something you hear. We meet at various comfy rooms at Taborspace in SE PDX. Once a month we meet in Room 04 with a play space for your children to attend with you (refer to comments on that week’s Meetup for room specifics). We provide coffee, tea, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. Many members find strong relationships when they connect through our online community and by meeting with each other one-on-one.

SCARS Healing Garden meetups are a time to be active with our bodies and engage our minds in healthful and productive ways. The SCARS Community Healing Garden is located in the PCC Rock Creek Learning Garden where I teach beginner’s gardening workshops on various Fridays throughout the year. Childcare is not available during the gardening classes.

Other Survivor-led meetings include DV Advocacy training, Speakers’ Workshops, and Survivor Impact Panels. Check out the Meetup group calendar for more information!

SLOP – Suic. Language of Pain – Support Group with Angel Prater at Folktime – Thursdays @ Online via Zoom

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression
