Exercise/Sports Volunteer

Mental Health Community Centers, Prospect House

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

We are looking for volunteers to get our members interested in getting up and moving around! Exercise is important for everyone, whether that be going for long walks on the beach, playing a sport, or even tai chi! Exercise gets the body physically active to distract symptoms of a mental health diagnosis; and it can be fun! It is the perfect time of year here in SW Florida to get outside!
If interested, please contact Courtney: cdefrank@mhcci.com.

Mission Statement

MHCC provides a safe environment, promoting wellness, for individuals managing mental health.

Description

MHCC provides opportunities to enhance emotional health through situation-solution discussions and support groups, goal setting and performance sessions, a friendly caring atmosphere, and social activities to assist in problem-solving. We also offer vocational and educational training opportunities such as computer training, cooking, nutrition, creative arts, self-esteem building activities, independent living skills, etc. Social and recreational activities offered include beach/picnic outings, theater, library, physical fitness, sporting events, bowling, visits to local attractions.

At MHCC, peers support one another in reciprocal relationships. Peers have "been there, done that" and can relate to others who are now in a similar situation. Research has shown that peer-run self-help groups yield improvement in psychiatric symptoms resulting in decreased hospitalization, larger social support networks and enhanced esteem and social functioning.
