My Quiet Cave

 Supporting faith and mental health since 2011

 

My Quiet Cave equips faith communities to promote mental wellness for adults and teens through peer-led support groups

Since 2011, My Quiet Cave has been creating space for faith and mental health. Founded by two seminary students who struggled with navigating the landscape of bipolar disorder in the context of their faith, My Quiet Cave strives to provide people everywhere with a safe space to pursue both mental and spiritual wellness. Our programs are designed to create community, model vulnerability, empower self-care, and embrace our innate value as beloved children of God.

Internships

My Quiet Cave does not offer supervised internships; however, facilitating My Quiet Cave group is a fantastic way for counseling students to gain group experience.

By choosing to launch a group, you’ll gain valuable leadership experience by taking the initiative to find a co-facilitator, partner with a local church or organization, complete your training, and lead an 8-week mental health support group.

Please check with your degree program to determine whether this volunteer opportunity qualifies for credit hours.

Anchor | for everyone

Anchor groups are open, ongoing support groups for individuals affected by mental health challenges and/or their supporters. Led by trained facilitators, Anchor groups provide an opportunity for people to find safe community, encourage one another in their walks of faith, and pursue mental wellness.

To gain the necessary experience, My Quiet Cave strongly encourages facilitators to lead one of our 8-week programs prior to launching an ongoing Anchor group.
