The Stop has long enhanced communities through innovative food security programs and advocacy efforts. Now, the Stop is going beyond food, striving to tackle mental health needs in the community through its new Emotional Wellness Peer Support Group. Lead by two peers with lived experience, the group seeks to nurture self-care and promote personal wellbeing through a weekly two-hour meeting. Members of the Stop community and beyond are invited to this open group to share their personal challenges and triumphs, connect intimately through shared experience, and find the strength to access necessary resources and services.
Together, the food and advocacy programs alleviate some of the physical and emotional strain that can result from daily systematic barriers. Our new group is a safe space for stigmatized, oppressed, marginalized voices to be heard and where self-determined personal care is valued.
We seek to be the link that brings together consumer survivors who encounter food scarcity. Our passion is for our participants to cultivate greater depths of empowerment and make the positive transformations they so desire. ”
