Christmas Gatherings at

georgia's peer support, wellness, and respite centers

Christmas can be a time of joy and celebration. It can also be a time of loneliness and isolation. Whatever your religion is (or isn’t), the fact is that when Christmas Day comes, many of us have the day off, and most of the places we rely on for our self-care are not open for us: Libraries, gyms, mental health service providers, and even our favorite restaurants are closed. 

That’s why each year on Christmas Day our Peer Support, Wellness, and Respite Centers open their doors to all of Georgia’s peers, regardless of religion (or lack of religion). We join together as peers to lift one another up on a day when so many doors are closed.
