Invisible Disabilities is an umbrella term for hidden disabilities – disabilities that are not immediately visible. Invisible Disabilities are innate and neurological in nature, such as Learning Disabilities, Borderline Personality Disorder (Emotional Dysregulation), Aspergers, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, ADD, ADHD, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Anxiety Disorder, Brain Injury, Epilepsy, really anything where a person feels differences in the brain. People with Invisible Disabilities can experience rejection and isolation which can impact mood and thinking patterns, education, employment, and building social relationships. Not always, but often, there is a mental health condition. I want to give people with Invisible Disabilities and mental health issues, the opportunity to come together to socialize, to have fun, to help have a fulfilling lifestyle. You can join if you think you have a disability, if you are just looking for friends, if you are lonely. In this group, you will feel accepted, comfortable, “at home”. We will do many events movies, bowling, camping, game nights – we are open to anything and we will have some nights to just get together and talk about our problems in a safe environment. Any age is welcome but some of the events will be at age levels.
