Patients

Patient Alumni

At The Menninger Clinic, we know that the road to recovery from mental illness and/or addiction is challenging. We also know from years of experience that the friendships and experiences shared with other patients are an invaluable part of the treatment equation.
 

Living Healthier Together

That’s why we established Living Healthier Together, our patient affinity organization that all former patients or "graduates" are encouraged to join, free of charge.
 
We offer events where graduates can get together to hear from Menninger faculty and staff; share experiences in recovery; and support one another in times of celebration and in times of challenge. An e-newsletter is planned to help graduates as they continue their recovery following discharge from Menninger. 
 
All Recovery Support Group

One current offering from Living Healthier Together is the All Recovery Support Group, a peer-led support group for adults that meets alternate Saturdays from 3-4 pm at The Gathering Place, which is conveniently located about a mile from Menninger at 5310 S. Willow Dr.

 

Whether you're recovering from depression, anxiety, substance abuse or any other mental health issue, this group offers meaningful support, comfort and encouragement. All graduates of Menninger inpatient programs as well as current and former clients of Outpatient Services and Pathfinder are welcome. No reservations are needed.

 

The group meets on these Saturdays in 2017:

  • March 11 and 25
  • August 12 and 26
  • April 8 and 22
  • September 9 and 23
  • May 6 and 20
