All those dramatic movie scenes are right about heartbreak. Cutting ties with your loved ones takes a whole lot of willpower to accept, grieve the separation, and cope with the intense negative emotions. No matter how intense and magical the bond you shared was, separation can be challenging. Join us as we learn and embrace the power of coping with letting go of a loved one and moving forward.
Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
