On May 25th STICKAN hosted it's second meeting. We talked about how to get the target group motivated, curious and interested to participate. Do we need to add something extra to reach them?
One thing to think about in the future EU group activities is that many people attend in treatment programs, employment services activities or work during daytime. Therefore, it’s more likely that more could participate if it was during the evening.
One suggestion that came up was to make flyers and describe something that is connected to activities that makes everyday life meaningful, joyful and inspiring. This idea is connected to all the group activity events that we have had earlier, though the target group have expressed that what's missing in the currently available addiction treatment is something that builds a meaningful, joyful and inspiring everyday life. The group client also said that this should be something you offer everybody after completion of addiction treatment, or parallel before completion.
Another idea that came up was to note on the flyers/leaflet that this EU project is offering activities and meetings with people that are aiming to explore what it is that builds a meaningful, joyful and inspiring everyday life. Example or suggestions that could make this happen is to for example watch a movie together, go to a music concert or listen to a song and analyse the lyrics.
