Mental Health Cafe – September Edition
September 18, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
For September’s Mental Health Cafe, join the Inside Our Minds Team for conversation and peer support at Schenley Plaza. We are also planning on heading over to the Cathedral to meet Pitt’s therapy dogs!
Mental Health Cafe is a monthly community conversation on mental health and mental illness over coffee and treats. The event will focus on informal discussions and friendly peer support in a welcoming space for all. People are invited to participate actively or passively, or just listen.
Important Notes: Mental Health Cafe is a space for peers and allies to have open conversations that represent a wide variety of opinions and beliefs, some of which everyone may not agree with. As a community, we expect everyone to hold respectful conversations. Anyone who personally attacks, harasses, or discriminates against another community member will be asked to leave and will be potentially banned from future events.
Mental Health Cafe is not a substitute for professional mental health treatment. We are also NOT a support group. We can only provide friendly peer support and conversation. 🙂
Schenley Plaza is located between the Carnegie and Hillman Libraries, the Cathedral of Learning, and the Frick Fine Arts Building in Oakland. The Plaza is accessible (including restrooms) and is a short distance (1-2 minutes by foot) from the Cathedral.
If you cannot find the group or are nervous/anxious upon arriving, please private message our Facebook page or text the Inside Our Minds phone line: (412) 438-3278.
The Inside Our Minds staff will have earplugs on hand for anyone who would like them. We also utilize a colored name tag system to display social interaction preferences (originally from the Autistic community).
About Us: Inside Our Minds is an organization that works to elevate the voices of people with lived experience of mental illness and madness in Pittsburgh. Inside Our Minds is a project of New Sun Rising.
