EMHS Programs We Are Striving For and Descriptions

  1. EMHS Care Meetings for Peer Support: This would be our main peer support meeting.  The name implies that we are caring about the individuals who participate.
  2. EMHS Care Meetings for Family Support: This would be our main family support meeting.  As with the peer meetings, the name implies we are caring about the family members who participate.
  3. EMHS THIS is Our Story (Tremendous, Heroic, Incredible, and Superb): This is a program where we would train speakers to go out to different locations to tell Our Story of how each individual lives with mental illness, their recovery, and their growth.  These events would be presented in pairs.
  4. EMHS THIS is Their Story (Tremendous, Heroic, Incredible, and Superb): This is a program where we would train speakers to go out to different locations to tell Their Story of how each individual lives with a family member who lives with mental illness, their care and compassion, and their growth in loving that family member.  Again, these events would be presented in pairs.
  5. EMHS Second Chances: This program would focus on parolees fresh out of prison who happen to live with mental illness.  This would be held in the halfway houses in our communities to help these parolees live life outside of prison.
  6. EMHS Veterans Strong: This program would focus on veterans in our communities, where most of them came from battle-related PTSD in their lives, to help them have a voice and be able to relate to others while living with mental illness.
  7. EMHS Give Us Shelter: This program would focus on the homeless population in our communities who live with mental illness.  This may include helping them get into homeless shelters, getting them fed, etc.  This would give the homeless a way to be looked at as equals in our communities and not a bane.
  8. EMHS Overcoming Growing Pains: This program would focus on teenagers who live with a mental illness either through abuse, bullying, and trauma.  We would be assisting the schools with programs for LGTBQ+ children, those who come from low economic backgrounds, and those who are from different cultures or nations.  Also, suicide prevention among these children would be a priority.
  9. EMHS Strong Families Learn Together: This program would focus on family education of their loved one’s mental illness diagnoses through other families as peers to learn what people live through with their illness.
