This event has already occurred!
The Young Adults and Peers over 30 support group meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month, 11 am - 1 pm in Room A of the Jack Aaronson Conference Center, Star and Barry Tobias Ambulatory Campus of CentraState Medical Center, 901 W. Main St., Freehold.
No Stigma Network (NSN) offers a unique support group experience for young adults, 18 - 30, who live with mental health disorders. These young adults grapple with the challenges of their age group: transitioning from high school to work or college, accepting adult responsibilities, dealing with family relations, navigating social encounters, developing friendships, and seeking love relationships. In addition, they deal with the intrusive problems of mental health. There are few situations where young adults can safely count on nonjudgmental support as they tackle these challenges.
NSN's monthly support meetings provide the opportunity to share experiences, work through obstacles, and enjoy the company of friendly peers in an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. Meetings are facilitated by a trained, non-professional group leader who encourages openness and a positive attitude. The goals of the support group include: increased awareness of health and wellness, improved skills in communication, problem-solving, independent living and socializing, increased confidence and self-acceptance. Members learn how to advocate for themselves and achieve their personal goals.
