“Breaking Free from the Prison of Depression - Journey to a Healthier You”. Depression can affect every aspect of life, holding a person “hostage.” This confined mental, emotional, and physical condition prevents the ability to enjoy meaningful moments, relationships, and opportunities. This monthly support group provides a safe environment for individuals to focus on strengths, interests, and capabilities to “break out” and pursue the positive benefits to LIVE a healthier life. While on this journey, one must recognize and accept the possibility there is a capacity available to learn, grow, and change.

Friday, June 23 at 11:30 am
Meet the group at 11:30 at Applebee's at 3819 Carpenter Road in Ypsilanti.  There will be a sign-up sheet at the center.

Call Robbi Duda at 734-741-8586 to schedule an appointment.

  • Do you desire to learn a new hobby, observe a class and/or include some leisure activity in your weekly schedule?
