This event has now passed.Moving to a new country, going through a breakup, the loss of a job, or living with mental conditions is very challenging. Yet, there’s no reason to suffer alone when one can choose to join hands with others and let the power of connection and group support heal us.
In the absence of such social support in Beijing, CandleX established an English-speaking mental health peer support group in Oct 2015. It provides a safe environment for people living in Beijing to share personal experiences, thoughts, and feelings in small, confidential gatherings. This is a project provided by CandleX, an NGO in Beijing that focuses on mental health by awareness raising on depression. This is a continuing effort to provide more support to our Beijing English speaking community.
Key information for participants:
Our support groups are for people with any mental conditions ranging from anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression or people who are dealing with difficult situations in life. The event is only open to confirmed participants and will be conducted in English.
There will be a maximum number of seven people at each session and will cost 50RMB per person (free for people with income less than 6,000RMB per month). All information shared with the group is held confidential. All new participants will need to register first for eligibility screening.
