At Circle of Friends, participants are given hope and encouragement in rebuilding their lives. Any person with mental health challenges and/or their family members are welcome to join us at our center in Burney for peer support, friendship, and a variety of classes and other activities. Circle of Friends is a great place to learn about resources in the community and ways in which to be involved in the community. We strive to help our members recognize that we all have a valuable contribution to make, either through employment or volunteer work, and we encourage individual strengths and gifts.
Some of the classes that we have offered and are currently offering include: jewelry, knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, art, quilting, painting, cooking, budgeting, and computer lab; workshops on setting boundaries, dealing with loneliness, recovery, worry control, goal-setting, and depression. Activities include a vegetable garden, movie days in Redding and Burney, volunteer work cleaning up local parks, picnics, an exercise club, and fundraisers. Transportation may be available for many activities, and/or for certain appointments.
Please call Lynn Erickson at 335-4222 for more information.
