Program Description

Northern Initiative for Social Action (NISA) provides a variety of meaningful and useful programs in which consumer/survivors of mental illness can become involved. We develop occupational skills, nurture self-confidence and provide resources for recovery, by creating opportunities for participants to contribute to their own well-being and that of their community. Groups that are offered: dynamic minds; exercise group; YMCA group; positive recovery group; wellness recovery action plan (WRAP); family support group and daily maintenance plan. All of our programs are designed to foster inclusion for its membership, to establish a link to the community, and to give back to the community. We focus on programs that facilitate individual development and integration into the community. We believe that consumer/survivors can be creative and productive members of society and are capable of providing insight into their own problems, especially as they relate to employment, and can use their expertise and experience to resolve these problems. NISA is a not-for-profit, charitable organization and it is consumer run. Model of service is psychosocial rehabilitation, recovery and occupational therapy.
