Who are we?
Grófin's Youth Group (Unghugar) are a society of people who want to meet other like-minded people and form positive constructive relationships with each other. The group is specifically for young people between the ages of 18-30.
The support group is primarily intended for young people who are dealing with mental health challenges, are socially isolated, or are inactive in the community. The group is open to individuals anywhere in their recovery process and activities take place on a peer-to-peer basis. The group activities consist of a talk-circle, self-work, and fun events.
By participating in Unghugar, people get a purpose and opportunities, form relationships with peers and gradually take on a role within Grófin. Grófin creates a framework of support and encouragement within the group as well as allowing access to Grófin's other resources.
Unghugar meet 2x a week, on Wednesdays and Thursdays (see schedule for times). The meeting on Wednesdays is about 90 minutes with a break and it consists of talk-circles and tools as well as using some time to organize our activities.
In talk-circles, people are allowed to open up and express what's on their minds, whether it is positive or negative. We support each other. Next is a project or a tool that deals specifically with self-work, recovery (PACE) and empowerment and discussions around it. These projects can be a topic of discussion or a practical project designed to promote improved social skills, self-awareness, and self-confidence.
There are events every week that Unghugar organizes together.
