Question by CRAIGY WAIGY WOO WOO: Working with people with Mental Health Problems who are in recovery from drugs and alcohol. This is my new job?
I’ve been asked to come up with ideas for group sessions such as -
Fitness (I’m a qualified Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer)
Music (I’m an avid musician)
I need ideas what to with them and get them involved.
All are on medication so it’s hard to motivate alot of the time but they do have to participate to be able to stay at the hostel.
At the moment there is a pond project. a recent barbecue build has just been finished. They have darts night and a cooking night.
I need as many ideas a s possible.
Alot of them can’t leave the hostel by themselves or leave at all.
This is a new career and job for me and I myself have been through depression and addiction. I really really want to help. I became a Gym Instructor as it helps with my depression and that why I am doing this.
any ideas appreciated.

Maybe you could take them out jogging? (The ones that can leave the hostel).
