COVID-19: Things To Do, Virtual Classes, and Resources to Stay Safe and Informed
Mental health is important not only during May, Mental Health Awareness Month, but every month. Here Tomorrow, a nonprofit mental health center, knows this.
Here Tomorrow offers a free welcoming virtual and physical space to have conversations about mental health and receive guidance on what to do if mental health problems are getting in the way of you living your life. They are here to help you explore your options and connect you with what you are looking for to change your situation.
As a mental health collaborative, Here Tomorrow partners with other community organizations to make sure you get the help you are looking for when you need it. Through collaboration with people and organizations, the Here Tomorrow team is able to serve you in person, virtually, or telephonically, free of charge.
Visit Here Tomorrow
Here Tomorrow calls its space “the Meeting Place” because they are not an office, center, or practice. They are simply a starting point, a welcoming place to meet and have a conversation about mental health.
Here they provide information about resources and treatment options, referrals for treatment and community resources, and follow-up contacts to ensure your goals are met.
You are welcome to call or stop by the Meeting Place anytime, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm, or you can make an appointment to talk via phone, Facetime, or in person at the Meeting Place.
The Meeting Place is located at 910 3rd St., Neptune Beach, FL 32266
Here Tomorrow also offers Mobile Mental Health Crisis Support. If you or someone you love is in a mental health crisis and needs help, call (904) 372-9087. The Here Tomorrow crisis support clinical social worker will come to you, gain an understanding of your situation, and help develop an immediate plan to keep the person in crisis and others safe. They will then make a plan and find solutions to the issues at the root of the crisis.
Mental Health Support Group
If you’re dealing with a stressful life change, challenge, or difficult situation, you don’t have to go it alone. A support group can help. A support group provides an opportunity for people to share personal experiences, thoughts and feelings, coping strategies, and recovery tools in a safe and supportive environment.
For many, having a support group may be the answer between medical treatment and the need for emotional support. A person’s relationship with a doctor or other medical personnel may not provide adequate emotional support, and a person’s family and friends may not understand the impact of a traumatic event or treatment.
Every Monday, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm, the director of education and community outreach, Jeff Yalden, leads and hosts a free mental health support group at the Meeting Place. Jeff is a mental health motivational speaker, four-time bestselling author, TEDx Speaker, yoga teacher, and strong mental health professional who enjoys advocating for mental health and addiction and supporting others in recovery.
In this safe space, Jeff will guide you through healthy communication, healthy self-talk, healthy reframing of the narrative you’re telling yourself, and you’ll be supported in your day-to-day journey.
Here Tomorrow’s mission is to transform lives by building a community where mental healthcare is acceptable and accessible and to provide education to reduce the stigma associated with mental health conditions and seeking treatment. When life throws you pain, and it begins to feel unbearable, Here Tomorrow will stand by you and help navigate you through it.
It's okay to not be okay, and it's okay to ask for help. If you or someone you know is struggling, or to find out how to volunteer or make a donation, visit heretomorrow.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (904) 372-9087 for more information, resources, or to book an appointment.
