PROGRAMS

Program Descriptions – Annie’s Outreach

  • **NEW**!! Incentive Goals: Attending at least 5 groups per month will earn you a chance for a $50 gift card (of reasonable choice)! Make sure to check our updated calendar to see which groups/events you would like to join! Good luck!
  • Music of Our Souls:  Music can be a very useful tool in recovery. Feelings and emotions are often connected to lyrics of a melody, which can be a negative or positive association. In this group we will focus on the more positive side of things after everyone listens to the track. On Mondays from 12-12:30pm (after NAMI), group members will be encouraged to think of a song (or pre-pick one) that makes them feel good, brings back good memories, reminds them of someone they love or admire, etc. The lyrics and the connections will then be discussed among group members. This not only helps express people’s feelings/emotions when they might have trouble doing so without the aid of music, but it can also open up new experiences to other group members.
  • Outer Beauty Within – Makeup Class: Available on Friday, February 12, at 11:15am-12pm, Annie’s Outreach will have a beauty event! Sometimes, the inner beauty becomes more confident when the outer beauty is pampered. Come join the staff in learning about applying different products, including the proper way to use them. Individual stations for each person will be set up, which recognizes social distancing in the current world. You will be given your own materials and the skills you learned to take with you! Class size is limited to 8, so reserve your spot ASAP!
  • Southeast Peer Support: Spend your Monday and/or Wednesday mornings (10-11am) with Peer Support Specialists from Southeast Healthcare, making projects and tackling various subjects for recovery through peer support. The facilitators are Certified Peer Specialists who bring their own experiences to the table and encourage others. It is important in recovery to have a level of acceptance and to know that you are not alone in your struggles. Different options will be offered at different times, so make sure you don’t miss a thing!
  • NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness): A NAMI representative visits every Monday from 11am-12pm to explore participants’ ongoing struggles and offer peer-to-peer guidance. Family members and other natural support people are also welcome to utilize NAMI’s programs at Annie’s Outreach.
  • Emotional Journeys: At 12-12:30pm on Mondays, an emotion designated for that month will be of focus. Emotions can affect the way a person looks at the world, how they feel internally, and how they react externally. Some emotions are constant issues, while others can be a positive source of self-preservation. Journals will be encouraged to follow along progress or understanding of the different emotions from month to month.
  • Physical Motivation: This group runs from Tuesday through Friday mornings at 10-10:15a. People who would like to join can get a little workout, which includes walking, taking turns with different moves, stretches, and discussions of ways we try to get a little healthier. Most of these activities can be done from a chair for those who cannot stand.
  • Art Therapy: Tuesdays from 10:15-11:30am, Art Therapy will be available. It is surprising what can be accomplished through creating! Various projects will be available, as well as exploring consumer hobbies; all suggestions are welcome here. Something as simple as adult coloring can open the floor for a lot of discussions.
  • Pay It Forward: Also on varying Tuesdays (11:30a-12:30p), dedicated time will focus on giving back to the community. With COVID-19 we have to be creative on ways to give; but we can still try to brighten people’s day and, hopefully, get them familiar with our services. Making something to donate somewhere, such as a nursing home, is the goal, even if it is just notes of encouragement.
  • OSU Extension Classes: Every other Tuesday from 12-1pm through April via Zoom, specialists from the OSU Extension program will be available to share different aspects of life, including money/budgeting, healthy cooking, etc.
  • Guided Meditation: Every Wednesday from 10:15-11am, we will be experiencing a guided meditation. A pre-recorded audio soundtrack will be played to help guide one’s mind through a relaxation process. Time to relax is a vital part of practicing effective self-care.
  • Open Discussion: From 12-12:30pm on Wednesdays, this is a reserved time for people to discuss whatever they so choose. It could be politics, religion, latest entertainment buzz, etc.
  • Peer Support Meetings: Thursdays at 10:15a-11:15a, different topics will be reserved for this time to bring people together for a “meeting of the minds.” These topics can include how to avoid toxic people, setting boundaries, finding your triggers, etc. A new topic will be discussed at each meeting.
  • Life Skills: Every Thursday from 11:15am-12:15pm, group members can focus on a specific life skill for the current month. Some people might need help developing particular skills, such as budgeting or time management. Others may have mastered these and can offer information or tips on ways to conquer the skill, which could be great practice for true peer support!
  • Fun T-Shirt Friday!: Wear a “Fun” t-shirt, and get entered into a $5 gift card drawing – Easy as that!
  • WHAM (Whole Health Action Management): This evidence-based program will begin Friday, January 15, 2021 (10:30-11:30am), and run for the following 8-10 weeks. WHAM features a breakdown on goal setting, which its principles and guidelines can be applied to any kind of realistic goal one might have. A completion certificate will be given to those who attend at least 90%.
  • Gaming Central: Exactly as it sounds… games!! Come show off your gamer skills!
