Elko Loneliness Peer Support Group (Elko)

This is a support group for those suffering with isolation, feeling disconnection from community and neighbors and finding no solace in virtual spaces or social media. This is strictly in-person, in a safe and calming space, transportation possible. Trust and courage-building exercises, nature communing, trauma-informed practices, volunteering and community outreach. All ages, backgrounds, faiths, LGBTQ+, BIPOC welcoming.

I walk Elko every day and often meet others struggling with loneliness and fear and, since I know these things all too well, I would like to provide a safe space for anyone dealing with these issues. This is also part of my own healing. The only support groups here in Elko are for addiction, veterans or those dealing with death/suicide. I believe there are many more of us that would benefit from real, in person peer support especially since mental health care is extremely limited, expensive or coldly online in rural communities.

If anyone is interested in being a part of this group or in helping facilitate, please reach out.
