About this event

Up to Me: Training of Facilitators is a small group program, hosted virtually from Wisconsin, for people with lived experience of mental health challenges. Participants explore the story they have been telling themselves about their challenges and resilience. They practice skills to reverse harmful self-talk and then take a deep look at the costs and benefits of talking to others in various settings of their lives (friendship, school, social media, etc.). For situations where people decide to talk about their challenges and strengths, the program prepares them to respond to unanticipated reactions. They practice writing their story from a strengths-based perspective and, if they desire, sharing with the group. The last session focuses on options for support in the future.
