Recovery Groups

Recovery requires active and positive involvement by you which includes choice, responsibility, control and empowerment. This is done through a therapeutic climate where caring, inclusive relationships promote meaningful change in service users’ lives. Pathways SouthWest offers transport to aid in the motivation to attend activities.

For most activities we provide a pick up and drop off service so transport is never an issue. 


An informal social activity available weekly (Friday) , where those experiencing mental illness can mix, play games, engage in artwork, and social interactions. Consumers can stay for lunch. Activities include pool, bingo, jenga (giant),crafts and on occasions walks around the neighborhood.


We have a choice of two sewing groups every week. Tuesdays we focus on repairs. alterations and creating useful and decorative objects as well as knitting and crocheting. Thursdays is about craft and letting your creative juices flow.
