Blindness Low Vision Experience

Mind's Eye View Peer Support Group

During the Caronavirus Pandemic, this meeting will be held virtually. For more information, or to sign up for the Zoom event, contact Sheila Styron at sstyron@thewholeperson.org.

Whether you are new to vision loss, in the process of losing vision, or vision loss has always been a part of your life, you may be interested in “Mind’s Eye View.” This group is a solution-focused peer support group for people with vision loss seeking to live independent, fulfilling, self-supporting lives, fully integrated into society's mainstream. “Mind’s Eye View” will meet monthly from 5:30-6:30 pm on the first Monday of each month at The Whole Person to discuss issues faced by people who are blind or low vision and explore strategies for achieving and maintaining emotional, psychological and social well-being. Dr. Arnold Abels, PHD, and Sheila Styron, Blindness Low Vision Specialist, The Whole Person will co-facilitate “Mind’s Eye View”, as part of the “Blindness Low Vision Experience.”
