Mental Health Peer Group

Mental Health Peer Group

If you are a person with a mental health disability, join your peers to share information and successful techniques addressing the needs and challenges that you face.

We are excited to have a qualified professional to facilitate TWP’s Mental Health Peer group: Deborah (Deb) Babbitt. Deborah is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri. After earning her MSW at University of Missouri, Kansas City in 2010 as a Jewish Heritage-Hartford Fellow, she worked with adults, older adults and families in various settings. Work in community, health care and acute psychiatric care settings have provided Deborah with a broad perspective on the issues of aging and supporting aging parents, coping with chronic illness, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief and loss.

Deborah enjoys building connection and providing education to help others gain insight, build skills to cope with and better manage life’s stressors. Deborah believes in the power of listening, clarifying ideas and co-creating a new narrative that incorporates a new approach to thoughts and feelings.

The belief that hope is always with us is a foundational premise to wellbeing. Deborah teaches that one's hope transitions as one's situation changes. 

Using Mindfulness as a basis, Deborah utilizes Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Expressive techniques and tailors her approach to the needs of the person and the issues at hand. 

Join us the 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month from 5:30-7:30pm virtually or in person at The Whole Person, 3710 Main, KCMO. The meeting on November 2, 2021 will only be held virtually.

If you are interested in joining the group through Zoom, please email Amy Harris at aharris@thewholeperson.org
