Recovery from mental illness is not only possible, it is real! The Gathering Place promotes recovery from mental illnesses in all that we do.
The Gathering Place is part of a movement in Wisconsin that approaches treatment of mental illness and addictions in a nontraditional way. The Gathering Place is one of 8 Peer Run Organizations in the State, managed 100% by individuals with lived experience of mental illness. Who better to promote recovery than someone who has experienced a similar journey? Therefore, the term "peers."
We are a community of peers and it is through the sharing of similar life experiences that our members gain friendship, understanding, hope and strength.
Come to The Gathering Place to take part of our recovery-oriented programs and activities...sit in on a support group, attend a Green Bay Packer tailgate party, play in the Victory Vegetable Garden or just come, socialize, relax and be!
