Weekly emotional wellness support group helps women in the Triad

GREENSBORO, NC (WGHP) – You don’t know each other personally.

Struggles linked these women.

“I was just lost and I just had to be resuscitated, get help and be myself again,” said Sascha Salick.

A toxic relationship and the pandemic shook the costume designer’s life.

“Last year, during the pandemic, I was unemployed for the first time in a very, very long time. Nobody made any films. There were no plays. No money came in, ”she said.

Karen Bouldin copes with the fear that got worse during the shutdown.

“I used to be able to get out of smaller crowds somehow, but since so many people were unemployed and the children were out of school, they now went to the places where I would settle,” Bouldin called.

She needed help finding new coping strategies.

“I knew I had to find another level of support,” said Karen Bouldin.

A weekly emotional wellbeing support group has helped Salick and Bouldin get the tools they need to make self-care a priority.

A peer support specialist from Mental Health Greensboro meets with you and other women at the Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro to help them develop strategies to address their needs.

“The focus is on what to talk about. Emotional wellbeing is how I hold my wellbeing to get through my day, but also knowing that mental health is physical health, ”said Tammi Taylor, Peer Support Specialist and moderator for the Women’s Emotional Wellness Support Group.

“The Women’s Resource Center is here to help you meet these challenges and find skills and resources to help you take your next step forward,” said Chewan Moore, director of Community Resources.

Women have free access to the self-help group in person or virtually.

You can visit the Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro monthly calendar to sign up for the Women’s Emotional Wellness Support Group.

As an additional resource, Mental Health Greensboro has a total of seven support groups to choose from.
