For tomorrow’s meeting, I’d like to get people’s input on a project that is being launched soon. OHA is working to launch a web site that will connect people with behavioral health supports. It’s meant to be a “one stop shop” for people seeking services. We are in the very early stages of this process, and we’re trying to design the page around the needs of the people who will use it… which means being led by the input we get from consumers and peers.

So here are some questions the web design and marketing folks have asked us to help get them started:

+ How are you feeling right now? What do you think could help? What would make you feel better?

+ Have you ever searched online for mental health or addiction recovery services?

+ What does success look like for you when it comes to mental health and recovery?

+ When looking for services & supports, what do you hope to get out of working with a treatment provider? (therapist, psychiatrist, counselor, or peer support specialist)

+ If an online portal was available to help link you to services, what types of features or tools would you find most helpful?

As  always, you’re welcome to send an email or give me a call if you can’t join our meeting tomorrow.

We’ll be putting together a consumer steering committee for this project, so if you’re interested in joining that please let me know! Thanks, all.

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.

You’re here to help others, we’re here to help you.

As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.

Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.

We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout.

We invite you to participate in these spaces at your level of comfort.

We at Lines for Life are grateful for the work you do to keep our communities safe and well, and we want to thank you by offering space for you to recharge and stay connected to the passion which drew you to your field.

Benefits of participating:

  • Stress reduction
  • Evidence-based self-care strategies
  • Work-life balance strategies
  • Resource sharing
  • Community with those who care for others professionally

More about the MHAW COVID-19 Bereavement Support Groups:
Excerpt(s) from
Last viewed online 2020 May 15:

People are unable to grieve the loss of loved ones in ways they are used to. No wakes for Christians. No shivas for Jews. No three-day mourning periods for Muslims.

That’s why Long Island’s two leading, county-based mental health organizations have begun offering online bereavement support groups designed to provide comfort, support, and “grief tools” to those who have lost loved ones to the COVID-19 virus. The first group begins on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Details can be found at www.bereavement.mhaw.org.

Mandatory social distancing has sharply curtailed people’s ability to grieve in conventional, in-person settings. In the absence of the intimate contact typically associated with the mourning process, these remote, weekly bereavement sessions aim to mollify the pain of individuals whose family members or close friends have succumbed to COVID-19.

The “COVID-19 Bereavement Support Group” initiative is hosted by the Suffolk County-based Association for Mental Health and Wellness and the Mental Health Association of Nassau County.

Guided by experienced grief counselors, the groups will convene remotely in 60- or 90-minute sessions via a secure Zoom line over the course of a four- or six-week period. There is no cost to take part and registration – which is limited to 12 participants per group – is on a first-come basis.

“As everyone can imagine, losing a loved one to the virus is a deeply painful and jarring experience,” said Michael Stoltz, C.E.O. of the Association for Mental Health and Wellness, which is headquartered in Ronkonkoma. “We’ve identified skilled and sensitive grief counselors who are well qualified to help participants build comforting pathways for healing, even in a technologically remote setting.”

“The pandemic’s restrictions largely prevent mourners from experiencing the reassuring feelings of hugs and other types of close-up contact,” said Jeffrey McQueen, Executive Director of the Hempstead-based Mental Health Association of Nassau County. “Grieving remotely can’t fully replace the face-to-face experience, but it can help reinforce feelings of hope and help fill the void.”

Participants in any of the five COVID-19 Bereavement Support Groups must be mourning the loss of a family member or close friend who has died from COVID-19.

The group categories are:

Grieving Adults Support Groups: For people who have lost a loved one to coronavirus and cannot grieve in person with their loved ones. The group will bring together others who are struggling to come to terms with the loss, to create a sense of closure, and to grieve in community. There will be two groups in this category.

Peer Bereavement Support Group: For individuals experiencing a mental health condition who have lost a loved one to coronavirus. Participants have a safe and supportive space to share their stories with others who can truly relate to their pain and experiences.

Veterans Bereavement Support Group: For Veterans and their families who have lost someone to coronavirus and cannot grieve in person with their loved ones. This group will deal with issues specific to the Veterans community.

Creative Arts Bereavement Support Group: The making of art can serve as a safe outlet for the expression of thoughts and emotions relating to death and loss. By expressing these feelings in a symbolic manner, mourners can nurture their sense of control, organization, and containment. Participants may use such art supplies as copy paper, colored pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, and glue.

Interested parties may register at www.bereavement.mhaw.org.


About the Association for Mental Health and Wellness

The Association for Mental Health and Wellness (MHAW), a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation based in Ronkonkoma, NY, provides programs, services, and advocacy for people facing mental health challenges with an enhanced focus on serving military Veterans.

MHAW dates back to 1955 with the incorporation of the Mental Health Association in Suffolk County (MHA Suffolk). In 1990, Clubhouse of Suffolk was launched, providing a wide array of vocational rehabilitation services and recovery programs. With the growing need to provide services for Veterans with PTSD and other battle-related brain injuries, Clubhouse merged with MHA Suffolk and Suffolk County United Veterans in 2014 to form the Association for Mental Health and Wellness.

MHAW is committed to the core practice values of empowerment, hope, opportunity, and cultural competence. All of the agency’s direct service workers are trained in the importance of addressing health from trauma-informed and whole person perspectives with enriched understanding of the social and economic conditions that contribute to physical and mental health and substance abuse.

MHAW’s Mental Health HelpLine can be reached at 631-471-7242 ext. 2. Their web address is www.mhaw.org.

SMART Recovery Toolbox

https://www.smartrecovery.org/smart-recovery-toolbox/

The SMART Recovery Toolbox provides a variety of methods, worksheets, and exercises to help you self-manage your addiction recovery and your life. This collection of sensible tools is based on developing cognitive thinking skills to support you through addiction recovery.

Excerpt(s):

Mission:

To empower people to achieve independence from addiction problems with our science-based 4-Point Program®

About SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery is an abstinence-oriented, not-for-profit organization for individuals with addictive problems. Our self-empowering, free mutual support meetings focus on ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying. SMART Recovery does not use labels like “addict” or “alcoholic.” We teach scientifically validated methods designed to empower you to change and to develop a more positive lifestyle. After you have become familiar with SMART and are free of any addictive behavior, we encourage you to become a volunteer, so that we can keep expanding the number of meetings we offer.

Addictive behaviors can serve a purpose — to cope with life’s problems and emotional upsets. There can be drawbacks, however: while addictive behaviors may be effective coping methods in the short term, but they may cause harmful problems in the long term.

In SMART we focus on learning coping skills that work well short- and long-term. We base our ideas on what addiction science has shown to be effective. We have adapted these ideas into SMART’s tools for change. We are not much concerned with the past, except to learn from it. We focus on present-day events and the causes of self-destructive behaviors. We concentrate on what to do about them to achieve a positive lifestyle change, especially in the areas of our lives that are related to harmful addictive behavior.

Key Areas of Awareness and Change

SMART Recovery’s approach to behavioral change is built around our 4-Point Program®: (1) Building and maintaining the motivation to change. (2) Coping with urges to use. (3) Managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in an effective way without addictive behaviors. (4) Living a balanced, positive, and healthy life.

Motives and Goals

Motivation is a key element in nearly all you do. Consider that all human beings share several primary goals: survival, the avoidance of pain, happiness. Any addictive behaviors you engage in are to pursue these primary goals. We can help you see that you may be meeting these goals short-term but impairing your ability to meet them in the long-term.

Beliefs

What you believe about addiction is important, and there are many beliefs to choose from. You may believe, for example, that you’re powerless, or that after the first drink you lose all control and can’t stop. These beliefs may actually be damaging to you. Similar examples include, “I’ve tried and failed, so I can’t do it. I need alcohol to cope.” Or, “Because I’ve tried to quit and failed, I’m no good.” Those beliefs, and many like them, can’t be justified because the evidence just doesn’t support them. We will help you identify, examine, and modify your beliefs about yourself, your problems, and how to change.

Emotions

People often engage in addictive behavior to cope with emotional problems, including anger, guilt, anxiety, and low self-esteem. SMART Recovery teaches you how to diminish your emotional disturbances and increase self-acceptance. Then you can have greater motivation and the ability to change and to live more happily.

Behaviors

Changes in thinking and emotions alone are not enough. Commitment and follow-through are essential. We encourage participants to become involved in enjoyable activities that replace their problematic addictive behaviors.

How SMART Provides Help

Our meeting format is straightforward and organized. Our facilitators are trained to follow the SMART Recovery program and principles to help participants change their behavior. Some of them have had addictive problems, and some haven’t. That doesn’t seem to make any difference. Remember, SMART Recovery is a mental health and educational program, focused on changing human behavior. SMART Recovery meetings are serious but often fun. We don’t dredge up the past, about which we can do nothing. We can do something about the present and the future. Our meeting discussions focus on how to apply SMART’s tools for change so that you can go on to lead a more productive and connected life. Near the end of the meeting, the “hat” is passed for donations, which are encouraged but not required.

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.
  • If you’d like to continue the Family Self-Care discussion or have ideas you’d like to share, please join our discussion forum: https://www.reachoutoregon.org/forums/forum/self-care/

Bringing Hope to Every Interaction
Everyone has a role in supporting recovery; this workshop helps you identify yours.
Sponsored by Community Health Plan, Washington

Thursday, October 28, 2021, 1:00 PM — 5:00 PM PDT

Bringing Hope to Every Interaction brings recovery principles and practical skills to reception, front office and other non-clinical staff while reminding more experienced clinical staff and Certified Peer Counselors of the basics in recovery principles. It is the perfect way to get staff and administration on the same page and working in a unified, collaborative way. The training runs 4 hours  and includes lecture and video on non-verbal communication and recovery principles based on SAMHSA’s Guiding Principles of Recovery. Participants hear from a panel of local peers about their recovery from mental illness or substance use disorders and the people who helped them. It also includes an exercise that provides an opportunity for participants to identify internal and external barriers to recovery in the workplace. They identify practices they can implement that promote recovery in their daily routines. They also identify things the administration can do to foster a workplace based in recovery principles.

Expression through Art meets Firdays from 4pm – 5pm. We hope to see you there! If you need more information about the group, other THP services, or about using Zoom, please continue reading below.  

   

Art supplies: Please bring paper and something to draw with. (pens, colored pencils, markers, pencils, etc.)   

   

About fees:   

Many of us are on fixed incomes and unable to pay fees at this time – please come anyway! If you can pay a fee, know that it makes a difference and helps us cover our costs. The break-even fee (what it costs us to provide the service) is $10 per person and our system allows for a sliding scale. If you are going to pay a fee, please pay the amount (more or less) depending on your life circumstances.

 

If you are able to pay a fee, please go to:   

www.healingattention.org/happayment 

If this is your first time connecting with The Trauma Healing Project, a welcome registration is requested as well at: https://healingattention.org/welcome

Using Zoom:  

  1. If you’ve never used Zoom on your device, clicking on the link will take you to a download page for the app you’ll need to install. Once you do that it should be a one-step process each time afterwards. Sometimes I have to click on the link twice to help it see I actually DO have the app installed. Feel free to do it ahead of time when you have a minute to play with it.  
  2. Once you get in to zoom via the link, you’ll be in a waiting room. One of the group facilitators will let you in to the main room.  
  3. It’s fine to use a phone and the dial in number to call in to the group, but using the phone (for audio) and a computer (for video) at the same time can be buggy. Let us know if you’ll be needing to do that though, so we can plan well.  
  4. We will NOT be recording the group and no one else will have the ability to either.

  

Again, please do not hesitate to come because of your financial situation – your presence in the group is priceless and we want you here!

Tai Chi Benefits

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese exercise that promotes health and well-being. As you move through a series of postures at a slow and even pace, your body relaxes and your mind and emotions become calm. Tai Chi is gentle enough for anyone to enjoy, no matter the age. Practicing Tai Chi increases circulation, improves balance and posture, reduces stress, and increases vitality. It combines meditation, movement and breath awareness. Tai Chi is both a cardiovascular and weight-bearing exercise.

You’re here to help others, we’re here to help you.

As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.

Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.

We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout.

We invite you to participate in these spaces at your level of comfort.

We at Lines for Life are grateful for the work you do to keep our communities safe and well, and we want to thank you by offering space for you to recharge and stay connected to the passion which drew you to your field.

Benefits of participating:

  • Stress reduction
  • Evidence-based self-care strategies
  • Work-life balance strategies
  • Resource sharing
  • Community with those who care for others professionally

Wellness Affinity Groups – Weekdays

Our Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is our fifth tradition, which states “Each DDA group has one primary purpose – to carry its message of hope and recovery to those who still suffer from the effects of Dual Diagnosis.”

Dual Diagnosis Anonymous is a fellowship of persons who share their experiences, strengths, weaknesses, feelings, fears, and hopes with one another to resolve our dual diagnosis and/or learn to live at peace with unresolved problems. The only requirement for membership in DDA is a desire to develop healthy, addiction-free lifestyles.

Since 1996, we have been serving persons with severe and persistent mental health and/or substance use challenges and their families in Oregon, numerous states, and worldwide. We provide support and fellowship to help overcome and start on the road to recovery from dual diagnosis.

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.

HVN – Hearing Voices Network USA – Friends and Family Support – Tuesdays @ Online via Zoom
Nov 1 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

 

Tuesdays from 6:00pm-7:00pmPST

Friends and Family Support

Most CTHVN groups are exclusive to folks with lived experiences. This virtual group, however, is for those who don’t. Friends, family, support figures, and more can find community and information with peers!

You asked, we answered.

We’ve received requests from all over the state to create a group to support friends and family of voice-hearers. Folks want a place to learn about the voice-hearing experience and how best to support voice-hearers, explore difficult questions, and connect with others in the community. The weekly Friends and Family virtual support group is that place!

While the group is guided by facilitators who are voice-hearers in order to provide representation, we ask that voice-hearers seeking support join one of our groups aimed at folks with lived experience, which you can find listed here. Voice-hearers and those who support them benefit from different spaces that allow everyone to have open conversations, confront difficult topics, and connect with others who understand.

Everyone age 16 and up in a support role is welcome in the friends and family group! Come join a facilitated conversation on voice-hearing and find the community you’ve been looking for!

The group is virtual and takes place on zoom every Tuesday from 6-7 pm. You can join either online or by phone!

You’re here to help others, we’re here to help you.

As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.

Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.

We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout.

We invite you to participate in these spaces at your level of comfort.

We at Lines for Life are grateful for the work you do to keep our communities safe and well, and we want to thank you by offering space for you to recharge and stay connected to the passion which drew you to your field.

Benefits of participating:

  • Stress reduction
  • Evidence-based self-care strategies
  • Work-life balance strategies
  • Resource sharing
  • Community with those who care for others professionally

For tomorrow’s meeting, I’d like to get people’s input on a project that is being launched soon. OHA is working to launch a web site that will connect people with behavioral health supports. It’s meant to be a “one stop shop” for people seeking services. We are in the very early stages of this process, and we’re trying to design the page around the needs of the people who will use it… which means being led by the input we get from consumers and peers.

So here are some questions the web design and marketing folks have asked us to help get them started:

+ How are you feeling right now? What do you think could help? What would make you feel better?

+ Have you ever searched online for mental health or addiction recovery services?

+ What does success look like for you when it comes to mental health and recovery?

+ When looking for services & supports, what do you hope to get out of working with a treatment provider? (therapist, psychiatrist, counselor, or peer support specialist)

+ If an online portal was available to help link you to services, what types of features or tools would you find most helpful?

As  always, you’re welcome to send an email or give me a call if you can’t join our meeting tomorrow.

We’ll be putting together a consumer steering committee for this project, so if you’re interested in joining that please let me know! Thanks, all.

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.

You’re here to help others, we’re here to help you.

As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.

Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.

We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout.

We invite you to participate in these spaces at your level of comfort.

We at Lines for Life are grateful for the work you do to keep our communities safe and well, and we want to thank you by offering space for you to recharge and stay connected to the passion which drew you to your field.

Benefits of participating:

  • Stress reduction
  • Evidence-based self-care strategies
  • Work-life balance strategies
  • Resource sharing
  • Community with those who care for others professionally

More about the MHAW COVID-19 Bereavement Support Groups:
Excerpt(s) from
Last viewed online 2020 May 15:

People are unable to grieve the loss of loved ones in ways they are used to. No wakes for Christians. No shivas for Jews. No three-day mourning periods for Muslims.

That’s why Long Island’s two leading, county-based mental health organizations have begun offering online bereavement support groups designed to provide comfort, support, and “grief tools” to those who have lost loved ones to the COVID-19 virus. The first group begins on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Details can be found at www.bereavement.mhaw.org.

Mandatory social distancing has sharply curtailed people’s ability to grieve in conventional, in-person settings. In the absence of the intimate contact typically associated with the mourning process, these remote, weekly bereavement sessions aim to mollify the pain of individuals whose family members or close friends have succumbed to COVID-19.

The “COVID-19 Bereavement Support Group” initiative is hosted by the Suffolk County-based Association for Mental Health and Wellness and the Mental Health Association of Nassau County.

Guided by experienced grief counselors, the groups will convene remotely in 60- or 90-minute sessions via a secure Zoom line over the course of a four- or six-week period. There is no cost to take part and registration – which is limited to 12 participants per group – is on a first-come basis.

“As everyone can imagine, losing a loved one to the virus is a deeply painful and jarring experience,” said Michael Stoltz, C.E.O. of the Association for Mental Health and Wellness, which is headquartered in Ronkonkoma. “We’ve identified skilled and sensitive grief counselors who are well qualified to help participants build comforting pathways for healing, even in a technologically remote setting.”

“The pandemic’s restrictions largely prevent mourners from experiencing the reassuring feelings of hugs and other types of close-up contact,” said Jeffrey McQueen, Executive Director of the Hempstead-based Mental Health Association of Nassau County. “Grieving remotely can’t fully replace the face-to-face experience, but it can help reinforce feelings of hope and help fill the void.”

Participants in any of the five COVID-19 Bereavement Support Groups must be mourning the loss of a family member or close friend who has died from COVID-19.

The group categories are:

Grieving Adults Support Groups: For people who have lost a loved one to coronavirus and cannot grieve in person with their loved ones. The group will bring together others who are struggling to come to terms with the loss, to create a sense of closure, and to grieve in community. There will be two groups in this category.

Peer Bereavement Support Group: For individuals experiencing a mental health condition who have lost a loved one to coronavirus. Participants have a safe and supportive space to share their stories with others who can truly relate to their pain and experiences.

Veterans Bereavement Support Group: For Veterans and their families who have lost someone to coronavirus and cannot grieve in person with their loved ones. This group will deal with issues specific to the Veterans community.

Creative Arts Bereavement Support Group: The making of art can serve as a safe outlet for the expression of thoughts and emotions relating to death and loss. By expressing these feelings in a symbolic manner, mourners can nurture their sense of control, organization, and containment. Participants may use such art supplies as copy paper, colored pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, and glue.

Interested parties may register at www.bereavement.mhaw.org.


About the Association for Mental Health and Wellness

The Association for Mental Health and Wellness (MHAW), a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation based in Ronkonkoma, NY, provides programs, services, and advocacy for people facing mental health challenges with an enhanced focus on serving military Veterans.

MHAW dates back to 1955 with the incorporation of the Mental Health Association in Suffolk County (MHA Suffolk). In 1990, Clubhouse of Suffolk was launched, providing a wide array of vocational rehabilitation services and recovery programs. With the growing need to provide services for Veterans with PTSD and other battle-related brain injuries, Clubhouse merged with MHA Suffolk and Suffolk County United Veterans in 2014 to form the Association for Mental Health and Wellness.

MHAW is committed to the core practice values of empowerment, hope, opportunity, and cultural competence. All of the agency’s direct service workers are trained in the importance of addressing health from trauma-informed and whole person perspectives with enriched understanding of the social and economic conditions that contribute to physical and mental health and substance abuse.

MHAW’s Mental Health HelpLine can be reached at 631-471-7242 ext. 2. Their web address is www.mhaw.org.

SMART Recovery Toolbox

https://www.smartrecovery.org/smart-recovery-toolbox/

The SMART Recovery Toolbox provides a variety of methods, worksheets, and exercises to help you self-manage your addiction recovery and your life. This collection of sensible tools is based on developing cognitive thinking skills to support you through addiction recovery.

Excerpt(s):

Mission:

To empower people to achieve independence from addiction problems with our science-based 4-Point Program®

About SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery is an abstinence-oriented, not-for-profit organization for individuals with addictive problems. Our self-empowering, free mutual support meetings focus on ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying. SMART Recovery does not use labels like “addict” or “alcoholic.” We teach scientifically validated methods designed to empower you to change and to develop a more positive lifestyle. After you have become familiar with SMART and are free of any addictive behavior, we encourage you to become a volunteer, so that we can keep expanding the number of meetings we offer.

Addictive behaviors can serve a purpose — to cope with life’s problems and emotional upsets. There can be drawbacks, however: while addictive behaviors may be effective coping methods in the short term, but they may cause harmful problems in the long term.

In SMART we focus on learning coping skills that work well short- and long-term. We base our ideas on what addiction science has shown to be effective. We have adapted these ideas into SMART’s tools for change. We are not much concerned with the past, except to learn from it. We focus on present-day events and the causes of self-destructive behaviors. We concentrate on what to do about them to achieve a positive lifestyle change, especially in the areas of our lives that are related to harmful addictive behavior.

Key Areas of Awareness and Change

SMART Recovery’s approach to behavioral change is built around our 4-Point Program®: (1) Building and maintaining the motivation to change. (2) Coping with urges to use. (3) Managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in an effective way without addictive behaviors. (4) Living a balanced, positive, and healthy life.

Motives and Goals

Motivation is a key element in nearly all you do. Consider that all human beings share several primary goals: survival, the avoidance of pain, happiness. Any addictive behaviors you engage in are to pursue these primary goals. We can help you see that you may be meeting these goals short-term but impairing your ability to meet them in the long-term.

Beliefs

What you believe about addiction is important, and there are many beliefs to choose from. You may believe, for example, that you’re powerless, or that after the first drink you lose all control and can’t stop. These beliefs may actually be damaging to you. Similar examples include, “I’ve tried and failed, so I can’t do it. I need alcohol to cope.” Or, “Because I’ve tried to quit and failed, I’m no good.” Those beliefs, and many like them, can’t be justified because the evidence just doesn’t support them. We will help you identify, examine, and modify your beliefs about yourself, your problems, and how to change.

Emotions

People often engage in addictive behavior to cope with emotional problems, including anger, guilt, anxiety, and low self-esteem. SMART Recovery teaches you how to diminish your emotional disturbances and increase self-acceptance. Then you can have greater motivation and the ability to change and to live more happily.

Behaviors

Changes in thinking and emotions alone are not enough. Commitment and follow-through are essential. We encourage participants to become involved in enjoyable activities that replace their problematic addictive behaviors.

How SMART Provides Help

Our meeting format is straightforward and organized. Our facilitators are trained to follow the SMART Recovery program and principles to help participants change their behavior. Some of them have had addictive problems, and some haven’t. That doesn’t seem to make any difference. Remember, SMART Recovery is a mental health and educational program, focused on changing human behavior. SMART Recovery meetings are serious but often fun. We don’t dredge up the past, about which we can do nothing. We can do something about the present and the future. Our meeting discussions focus on how to apply SMART’s tools for change so that you can go on to lead a more productive and connected life. Near the end of the meeting, the “hat” is passed for donations, which are encouraged but not required.

Reach Out Oregon / Oregon Family Support Network

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.

You’re here to help others, we’re here to help you.

As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.

Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.

We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout.

We invite you to participate in these spaces at your level of comfort.

We at Lines for Life are grateful for the work you do to keep our communities safe and well, and we want to thank you by offering space for you to recharge and stay connected to the passion which drew you to your field.

Benefits of participating:

  • Stress reduction
  • Evidence-based self-care strategies
  • Work-life balance strategies
  • Resource sharing
  • Community with those who care for others professionally

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:
