    Activist Community Support Group (Mental Health Providers Unite!)

    Morrison Plaza

    MHPU! is hosting a free monthly community support group to help sustain and nourish the work you're doing for all of us.

    Mental Health Providers Unite! organizes at the intersections of mental health and injustice to challenge systems of oppression

    Are you an organizer of rally's and marches? Maybe you show up in the streets with signs of resistance. Perhaps you've been an activist for years and you have recently found yourself back on the frontlines witnessing and experiencing aggressive and violent police tactics? Maybe you're overwhelmed with the rapid news cycle and feeling paralyzed by grief and anger? Our current social, political and environmental climate is a recipe for trauma. If we are to resist and courageously unite against fascism in order to protect the most at-risk among us, we must understand how this work affects us.

    The depth, scope, and causes are different for everyone, but the fact that we are affected by the suffering of others and of our planet- that we have a trauma exposure response- is universal. We are in this work together, all of us. Please join us for a monthly community support group to process and respond to these urgent human and environmental conditions in a sustainable and intentional way.

    Please be mindful of your Facebook RSVP and let us know if you can make it as limited space is available. :)

    CONTACT: contact@mhpunite.com for questions/logistics. PARKING: Street parking, be mindful of neighbors driveways. ACCESSIBILITY: Meeting room on the first floor.
