- Reaching Out to All: This section is shared experience, strength, hope and ideas for reaching out to all people within a community, including those who may be underrepresented in meetings. We offer questions to consider on to reach out to others. This includes reaching out within the recovery communities and groups with special focus areas.
- Meeting Announcements: We reach out to the community to inform about our meetings in several ways, and one of the most basic is through meeting announcements, which include local flyers, media announcements in newspapers and online listings, public service announcements, and formal websites. This page is a resource area for such information.
- Outreach to Professionals: Reaching out to the professionals in the healing community who help codependents, such as therapists, social workers and other professionals, is an effective way to carry the message. On this page we offer templates of letters to professionals and some experience, strength and hope of practices. A group or Intergroup may choose to have a professional outreach mailing to therapists in their area. Another option is to attend a mental health fair or another event for professionals.
- Events and Materials: When members choose to do service at events, albeit mental health fairs, recovery events, or schools, we offer materials and suggestions. Ideas and templates for presentations, booths and materials such as signs, banners, pamphlets are offered.
If you have ideas for additional information to be covered in the Attracting Members section, please go to the submissions page and share!
