Learn and Grow within the Community.
The focus of our Volunteer program is to provide a recovery-oriented program for individuals to blossom and start to see self-worth, while being empowered to give back to the Austin MHC. We provide work readiness training in organizational skills, data entry, increasing stamina, filing and copying. Participants also develop the necessary skills and come to understand the responsibilities of becoming a Peer Mentor. Supervision will be given by a trained and certified Peer Supervisor in the state of Texas.
Every Friday | 11:30am – 12:30pm
In the Tai Chi group members learn how to maximize chi (life force) within their bodies and use it to heal & maintain their physical, mental and spiritual health. Breathing and relaxation techniques as well as the gentle moving and static exercises of Tai Chi are utilized to achieve this. All skill levels and all fitness levels are welcome.
Every Tuesday | 2:30pm – 3:30pm
We meet with our peers who like to crochet or would like to learn how to crochet and discuss projects we are working on, help each other who may be having problems, and share ideas and patterns.
This program provides MHPS’s with peer support supervision with credentialed Peer Supervisors. An MHPS experience should be peer-supported, nurturing, engaging, informative, and hands-on experience. MHPS Supervisors will assist the person in getting 250 total supervised hours and provide weekly supervision meetings which can be provided face-to-face or via teleconference. The experience should have you question your tact in handling crisis situations, worldviews, and many other day-to-day situations that may occur.
