CHOICES CAFÉ
The Café is a drop-in center which is client run and staff supported. It is a safe place for clients to go for social interaction and fun.

 

My experience at Choice’s Café has really helped me stabilize.  When I attend and participate in Choice’s Café activities, it helps me to know that my friends, the Peer Specialist staff, and peers that I interact with enable me to socialize, have fun, and instill in me that I can talk with others and process my feelings and thoughts.  I have been volunteering in the Café for many years and I really enjoy assisting with the activities and welcoming new comers into the Café. Helping others helps me in my recovery. I really enjoy supporting others . I get excited to tell other peers that  it is ok to have a bad day or to really enjoy your surroundings  when you are having a great day. Choice’s Café is a safe place to have fun and to express yourself. It truly is a positive place to hang out and I am grateful for all of the good times that I have had in the Café and the wonderful relationships that I have built and maintained over the years in the Café.

PEER SPECIALISTS

The Peer Specialist program empowers people with lived experience with mental illness the chance to help others along their journey to recovery. Trained through a rigorous evidence-based model, peer specialists are not therapists or psychiatrists. They are trained to be an advocate, support, and friend to those who are living with similar challenges due to their mental illness or struggle to overcome addiction.

 

I was a Choice House resident in the fall/winter of 2003. Previously, I had spent 5 1/2 dreary months in CMHIP (Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo). That was the low point of my life! I had lost my marriage, my home, and my business-all at once. Additionally, genetic depression runs in my family-both my grandfather and my father both suffered a “nervous breakdown” in mid-life just like me. I attempted suicide twice…Thank God, literally, I failed.

Today, I feel happy and blessed, partly because I know so many of you former Choice House residents and LCMH consumers who are “survivors” of mental illness. You are my heroes, some of the nicest and most intelligent people I know. I won’t name you-but you know who you are. Like my father, I attribute my recovery to my spirituality. Although medicine and skilled caregivers had a lot to do with my recovery, my higher power who created the discoverers of those “miracle drugs” and those fine caregivers truly helps me.

I am grateful for the Choice’s Café and the great people that I can hang out with. Thank you for being a part of my recovery and allowing me to be a part of yours.
