Group Activity for your Team! Community Connections Fridays at Bridgeview is a drop in center for adults living with serious and persistent mental illness. Adults living with serious mental illness often struggle with the stigma of their diagnosis, causing them to isolate themselves from others. Bridgeview offers a setting that promotes social interaction. Each day, between 50-70 Bridgeview members enjoy a nutritious, balanced lunch at Bridgeview. This free meal is a hook to get members to leave the isolation of their home and come engage with others. The social engagement that occurs during lunch is just as important as the sustenance received from the food. For many members, a noon meal at Bridgeview is their only food for the day.

Community Connections Friday's are a perfect way for businesses, faith communities and organizations to connect with Bridgeview and its mission by bringing and serving lunch while visiting and playing games with members. Lunch can be anything from prepared sandwiches to hot dishes to salads. Lunch is served at noon on Friday's so the typical length of time for a team to stay is from 11:45 to 1:00 PM, but we remain flexible on the time.
