re:MIND provides free and confidential support groups for individuals living with, or family and friends affected by, depression and bipolar disorders.
In order to reach young individuals living with depression and bipolar disorder, re:MIND collaborates with schools in the surrounding area. re:MIND provides a free support group on school campuses for students (ages 13-17) once a week during the school day. Participation in groups is voluntary and must be a least 60 minutes long. re:MIND provides a professionally trained, managed and monitored facilitator to facilitate a one hour support group at the school location once a week during school hours. Students must be screened by a mental health staff person (on campus) and referred to the group. All students must be on Communities in Schools (CIS) caseload or have appropriate re:MIND consent form prior to attending group. Groups should have 5-8 students present at each group meeting and a mental health professional must be on the school campus during group time. Thanks to our generous donors we provide our weekly support groups, valued at more than $20,000 per year, to schools who are ready to talk about mental health at no cost to the school or students.
