> > I left my volunteer job last August in order to take care of my mother, who had spinal surgery. Then came my medical emergency. It took me about two months to recover. My reluctance to return to volunteering is partially monetary. It costs me quite a bit of money to commute. I am considering returning next week, though. It is hurting me to be home with nothing to do. I will start by going twice a week.

I was lucky enough to find an organization that caters to people with mental illness. It is understood that people will not be feeling well enough to engage in activities every day. Much of the work involves keeping the organization running by soliciting funding and performing administrative tasks. There are creative outlets as well. People produce art that is shown and sold in local galleries. Creative writing is supported by having workshops. Cooking and preparing lunch is another activity. There are social workers to help out with keeping people involved and encourage people to interact in the community. The people there are great.
