If you are a female minority veteran and you aren’t feeling your best right now, you are not alone. Many of us are living with a sense of loneliness and isolation that can have strong effects on our well-being, now and over the longer term.
The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, working in partnership with Tactful Disruption, has created an online support group exclusively for female minority veterans in Northern Illinois.
This is a safe, welcoming space where you can share experiences, discuss coping skills, and offer each other hope. Each online meeting will be led by a Certified Peer Support Specialist who is also a female minority veteran, so she understands what it’s like to experience these feelings.
Meetings are free of charge, thanks to support from Chicago LINKS Charities Foundation. We welcome all female minority veterans, all ages, living in the Chicago area.
