It is that time again. Everyone is invited to Serenity Steps Peer Support Center’s Annual Open House on Friday, October 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Serenity Steps is located at 567 Main St. in Berlin. There will be nibbles available all day, and it is a great chance to see what peer support looks like.
Serenity Steps provides both support groups and individual peer support, with peers who have experiential knowledge. They are living with it and are taking the same type of recovery journey themselves. Mental illness is often an isolating experience. At Serenity Steps, people learn they are not alone and that recovery is possible. People can, and do, recover from mental illness. At Serenity Steps people are supported to create a vision of their own best life, and receive the support in making that vision a reality.
It has been estimated that 1 in 5 people in N.H. will struggle with some form of mental illness in their lives. Those people are your neighbors, friends, children and other members of the community. The services offered by the Serenity Steps are free of charge, and offered in a supportive, hope-filled environment. There is no intake process. In order to use the services, you just have to want to move forward, and the courage to come in and try new things.
At Serenity Steps, there are computers and WIFI available to members, as well as social and recreation activities. There are monthly educational speakers. The coffee pot is always on and the door is always open. Please drop in for the open house and see what the Center is all about. Meet the members of the community who are moving forward in their lives. For more information, please call 752-8111
