During the month of December, Members, Friends and Allies of Recovery Rocks Community will write and send holiday cards and Letters of Hope to individuals who are voluntarily and involuntarily being held in psychiatric institutions.
Recovery Rocks Community has been inspired by other groups in Victoria, Canberra and around the world doing similar projects and have decided to take up the initiative locally in WA with the ‘December Letters of Hope Project’ which will occur during the month of December 2019. We encourage letter-writers from across WA to participate and join with us.
We will gather on Sunday 8th December, 2pm to 4pm at Dome Café, 219 Railway Pde, Maylands WA. Together we will write secular holiday cards with messages of hope, healing, and encouragement to our friends in psychiatric institutions. If you wish to join us on the day, please RSVP by 7th Dec on email: firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile: 0447 641 122
If you are unable to attend but wish to support this initiative, you can write and post your letters to
Letters of Hope, C/O Recovery Rocks Community Inc, PO Box 358, Cannington WA 6987
You can also support the Recovery Rocks Community, December Letters of Hope Project by donating cards, envelopes, stationary or art materials. Please post or contact us to arrange drop off of items for donation.
We invite all who care about those who will find themselves spending their holidays in psychiatric institutions to join us in sending out holiday greetings (cards, notes, art, and letters) to patients in psychiatric confines. Any card or picture or letter sent in the spirit of kindness to a person experiencing psychiatric confinement will mean so much. Your letter of encouragement and solidarity might be the letter that humanizes a patient in an otherwise traumatizing and dehumanizing situation. Your letter might be the one that makes someone who is being treated like no one remember that they are someone, someone very special.
