PROGRAMS

ONE-TO-ONE CAREGIVER SUPPORT 

Recognizing that self-care is the “oxygen mask” for the mental illness caregiver, Courage to Caregivers is accepting registrations for volunteers and participants in the launch of its One-to-One Caregiver Support program. 

The program connects caregivers with volunteers who have experience caring for someone with a mental illness. The purpose of the program is to provide participants with training and resources to help them take care of themselves both physically and emotionally so they are better able to take care of someone else.

BREATHING MEDITATION

We know that meditation allows you to better manage day-to-day and critical stressful situations. We have found that utilizing proper breathing techniques is vital to the regulation of our stress levels.

Tuesday’s at 6:00 p.m. at Laurel School - 1 Lyman Circle in Shaker Heights, OH.

CLEVELAND - WEST SIDE

COMING SOON to Urban Community School - 4909 Lorain Avenue in Cleveland, OH!

SUPPORT GROUPS

We want you to know, as a caregiver, you are not alone. 

Our support groups are co-facilitated by both a counselor or social worker as well as a trained peer specialist who has experience caring for a loved one with mental illness.

The goals for our support groups include reinforcing a variety of skills that seek to empower the mental illness caregiver as well as establish a caring community.

Our programs focus on:

EDUCATION

By providing a source of support and information for caregivers of individuals with mental health challenges. There will be a weekly ‘theme’ around self-care that will be incorporated (i.e. building resilience, adapting a growth mindset, prioritizing self-care, mindfulness) to help participants focus on new ways to evaluate, manage, and succeed in their daily lives. A weekly handout incorporating the ‘theme’ of the week will offer take home suggestions for further reflection.

SUPPORT

By reducing the stress of caregiver burden by helping participants feel less isolated and alone as well as better understood. Our support groups offer a unique approach and provide an environment that is positive and uplifting as well as focused on the caregivers’ self-care. By providing both professional and trained peer facilitators, participants will be able to find the best fit for their individual needs.

EMPOWERMENT

By empowering participants to achieve their personal goals aimed at reducing stress and improved satisfaction with life, through sharing their experiences, as well as improved health and well-being by taking better care of themselves.
