Support Group: Living with Emotional and/or Physical Pain and/or PTSD, Complicated by Hopelessness
Tonight, from 6:00-7:30 pm.
For those who are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired of their emotional, psychic and/or physical pain, and are feeling hopeless about it all.
A typical member would be someone who for all intents & purposes is considered “high functioning”, who is not part of the State’s mental health system, and about whom nearly everyone would say “I had no idea s/he was in such a world of hurt”.
The goal is to share experiences and ways of managing the emotional and physical pain you’re living with in a safe, upbeat environment unlike what most people think of when they hear the words “support group”.
We meet most Saturdays from 6:00-7:30 pm at The Warrior Project, 189 B Main Street, Lewiston ME 04240. (See directions below.)

Our groups are free and confidential and run by a loss survivor/social worker.
To Find Us: From Main Street in Lewiston, turn onto Park Street and park in the first parking space on the street that’s available. The meters are free after 5:00 pm.
You’ll see Heritage Books & Maps at the very beginning – 5 Park Street. (The light should be on inside to help you see it, although the shop will not be open).
Facing Heritage Books & Maps, you’ll see an alley to its left. A silver Jeep will probably be parked in that alley, near our entrance door on that side of the building.
Please enter through that back door off the alley. (You may hear a dog barking inside; she won’t bother you, but she is loud until she settles down.) There will be a sign posted on the door:
FMI: Text or call 207 713 0674. You may have to leave a message, in which case we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
In memory of my beloved husband John Kelly Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
The Warrior Project will eventually become a warm, welcoming drop-in center for those living with extreme emotional and/or physical pain coupled with hopelessness, and a resource for families and friends fearing for the life of, or grieving the loss of, the person they love so much.
My Johnny was a true warrior, fighting demons no one else could see. I thought he was the strongest man in the world, and perhaps he was, but tragically, the demons got the better of him.
The name of this project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those wounded after September 11, 20o1. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.
Fair winds and following seas, Husband.
We now have a group on Facebook to help find resources, support and ideas for getting The Warrior Project off the ground. You can find us there at https://www.facebook.com/groups/thewarriorproject/
