Social Club

Once per quarter, MHAJC hosts activities to promote socialization and interaction for all Jackson County clients that participate in any mental health program, or anyone who is currently receiving care from a mental health provider.

Being part of a community is a basic need for all individuals. Healthcare providers recognize that people from the mental health community have an even greater need to interact with others to eliminate the isolation that can occur due to limited skills or negative stigma associated with decreased mental health.

MHAJC socials promote a stress free, fun and healthy atmosphere where friendships can develop. Those with more advanced skills have the opportunity to mentor and assist those with more serious limitations. Being accepted within a community of your peers provides opportunities to increase self esteem, self confidence, and an acceptance of others not always found in other avenues of social interaction.

Social events are held in Seymour, typically on the second or third Thursday of the months of February, once per summer, October and December. We begin our year in February and the normal time of the event is from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. Each social is free of charge and refreshments or a light dinner are provided. Our final social of the year is a Christmas party where each participant is given gifts that are collected using the generous donations from our Christmas Gift Lift providers.

Past socials have included the following activities:
Valentine’s Dance
Summer Picnic
Halloween contests
Christmas Gift Lift

Please call our office to obtain information regarding our next planned event. Clients and their caregivers are welcome to participate. We hope to see new faces as we continue to provide this popular and welcomed outlet for social activity.
