By request of one of our followers, tonight’s topic is about how to find a healthy relationship, after you have been in a toxic one.
It sounds simple, and it can be, but it is not always easy. There are many reasons that people wind up in relationships that are unhealthy or toxic, and those reasons need to be addressed first, before any kind of meaningful and long-term progress can be made.
This topic is not necessarily about a mental illness issue, but it definitely can impact our mental health when things are not going well. Also, there can be additional issues in relationships that might be caused or influenced by a mental health issue.

Because of this, we will look at healthy relationships at a basic level, and how to adjust our choices and patterns to work towards having them.
Tonight, we will discuss:
