Just wondering because I'm in this particular situation. With a program that I just started, this past wk and now I'm 2nd thoughts about being in it. Basically, its program geared to people with dual diagnoses. I mean its for people that are like me that are have disabilite/s, depression, anxiety, maybe other mental illness/es as well. Of course I forgot already about the other/s now. I feel that I'm only the more mature one in the group while others that are in it childish/babyish. At the same time its a non profit, but also funded by DDD (Division of Developmental Disabilities) and etc. Now, just wish that it/they can also provide additional service/s like beyond alternative/s. Like Camphill Association of North America does.

Thats totally an independent non-profit and in which about it in a paper that subscribed to, awhile back.

Hello Jessica,

If you feel that you cannot connect with other members in this group, and are not getting any benefit from it, move on. Non-profit organizations are limited by financial funding and thus offer limited resources.

Hello Maryann,

Thank you, again for your answer to my question here. Hmm interesting because here I thought that your answer would be the opposite of it. Guess, I was wrong about it. I do plan on giving it more time before moving on because theres some that I can relate more then others. Theres not so much in my area regarding these kind of programs offering beyond alternative/s that I'm seeking. In meantime I do need a day program to keep me occupied because either my family and/or me had no such luck keeping myself occupied. It also includes an other day program that I tried after my 1st to 3rd hospitalizations, but in the it was figured it wasn't for me by all of the staff, my family, and others. It was only for one diagnose/s regarding depression, anxiety, and/or other mental illness/es as well. In which had no luck in finding other one that fits my needs until this came along. After, 4th to 7th hospitalizations and it came with glowing reviews during 7th one. Especially, one of the social workers there worked there as assistant director of the program until she went into the hospital. At first when both my twin sister, me had the initial meeting, and intake interview was perfect. Until I started it and it also coincided during my period and etc. Plus, this day program also the offers going into the beyond community, vocational training.
