Disability Action Center NW

Living with my Disability

Dealing with challenges due to your disability? Try DAC NW Post Falls Office’s peer to peer support group – Living with My Disability. It’s people with a variety of disabilities coming together with help, tips, and life hacks for living with your disability.

Topics will include: sharing stories in a group setting, ideas for managing mental health, the history of disability in America, effective barrier removal and supports, your interests in work and social activities, and what’s next in your life.

There are many benefits to joining a support group. The main one is realizing you are not alone! This realization usually brings about a feeling of relief, by gaining the understanding for perhaps the very first time in your life that others have similar concerns and are there to help and encourage you. After you realize you aren’t alone and within a safe and supportive environment, you will begin to feel comfortable sharing your feelings and life circumstances with the group. This can be a very therapeutic and healing experience, particularly as you find that others in the group will listen nonjudgmentally. You will learn helpful information, lots of practical tips, and find resources for dealing with identified concerns. You and other members share success stories and strategies that helped them live an independent life.

This support group is free and runs from June 12 to July 24th, but will skip July 3rd due to the holiday.
