EQ Lounge is an online video conferencing support group for people with mental illness, using emotional intelligence as a recovery tool. Right now, we are serving 30 individuals with mental illness, and we are growing steadily. The $2000 will be used to integrate a valid, reliable, EQ Test into our website www.eqlounge.com, for use by our peers.
I have found the benefits of developing emotional intelligence for mental health recovery, among the veteran population, and I have determined that the civilian population could also benefit from this.
Using Emotional Intelligence consists of bringing awareness to those with mental illness about such concepts as healthy boundaries, resilience, positivity, etc.
We believe we are making a difference in their lives. We have a great retention rate, because for this demographic, emotional intelligence is a matter of their very survival.
Hope is the last thing people lose before they end their own lives to mental illness.
We hope you will join us in our journey of giving hope to people living with mental illness.
