About this meeting
These meetings are specifically for individuals who are suffering from Bipolar Disorder. While many Bipolar sufferers deal with mania or hypomanic episodes, most experience depression regularly. The combination can be quite difficult. In these meetings, you will have the opportunity to compare notes with others and get encouragement and ideas that you can use.

About the host
I have worked as a Certified Peer Supporter for over 12 years. I have broken the chains of addiction, serious mental illness, suicide attempts, lack of self-confidence and self-worth! The trauma from our families, institutions, and relationships can hold us back from living the lives we want instead of accepting whatever is handed to us. WE hold the power and it lives in our stories - our journey! Join me on this journey of mindfulness and authenticity!
Motivation for help
I have a strong desire to help people find their purpose and achieve their dreams. I understand the importance of giving space to work through trauma and suicidal thoughts.

Vanessa was great! She offered her own suggestions and support but also left plenty of space for people to share and support each other.

Easy to relate to, gave everyone a chance to speak, kept the conversation moving, and appreciated when anyone shared. The meeting did not pause at anytime it was lively.

I had Christina as my breakout facilitator and she was great - very intune with how the discussion was going, and the needs of the group. A person had a pressing issue and the group was good in giving support and sharing their own experience. Christina kept it all going and gave sound council /advice/recommendations.Vanessa was the overall group leader so I did not have much time with her at all -- ... at the closing I felt like when she laughed - - it was a longish laugh .. and also some stumbling with expressing herself / communicating to the group. Perhaps some of this is just the energy change from the breakout discussion to the main group
