Peer Space is a support group offered by the Tapestry Project designed for young adults to dive head first into self-exploration and reflection in a constructive environment.
Rooted in a firm belief in the idea of “Mutual Healing” - the Peer Space community unites around an ever changing theme of the week, that draws directly from the lived experiences of young adults across India; be it college, self-image, or individual values!
Moderated and Facilitated by Peer Leaders, group is a safe environment for young adults to share and speak about their experiences in life.
Tapestry Project is devoted to creating an inclusive, safe, and accessible environment for all
Adithya Krishnamoorthy (he/him): Adithya is a homesteader, pet parent, and mental health advocate. Driven by a passion for transformation, Adithya hopes to channel his lived experiences to form a community of people that believe in mutual healing.
Swetha Rajkumar (she/her): Swetha is psychologist-in-training, avid reader, and self-exploration aficionado! Her passion for helping others has followed her from playschool to college, and now, to Tapestry, where she believes in turning words into action.
Peer Space sessions are split into 3 parts: A Mindfulness Exercise, Theme Processing, and an Activity.
Mindfulness allows us to start every group on solid ground, attempting to bring members to baseline to facilitate introspective conversation.
Theme Processing is the bulk of group! All the talking goes here. Processing time is further split into two - one before the activity where we introduce the theme of the week, and one after the activity where we reflect on our notions and creations.
Our Activities are small creativity driven exercises that help us absorb the ideas shared in group, and explore their understanding of the topic at hand.
Since we are free of cost, signing up is a simple 3 step process:
Treat others with respect. This is not a debate, its is a community
Punctuality: Nothing better than starting on time! We have a 10 minute grace period for members to join group - this allows for maximum accessibility
Accessibility: Mental Health for All. If you have any factors preventing your participation in group, let us know - we’re happy to make accommodations. (Ex: You may like to turn off your camera if you can’t hold a device for a long period of time)
Inclusivity: Everyone in group is here for the same reason. Hate speech of any kind is grounds for removal from group
Cameras On: Cameras must stay on during group unless specifically requested ahead of time. This allows for members to get to know each other and participate more actively!
Participation: You get what you give, the more you say in group, the more you engage with fellow members - the more you stand to gain from group!
Boundaries and Intervention: Keep in mind this is not a clinical setting, nor does it aim to be. Group runs at the discretion of its members - share what you want, when you want to share it. Personal comfort is paramount to us, if you feel overwhelmed or hurt - actions will be taken to remedy.
No Hate Policy: Peer Moderators have the final say over who can stay in group. Any actions that violate our NHP will result in removal from group and/or barring from further participation in groups
We hope that you leave group with a sense of understanding about yourself. Each theme of the week represents a facet of the experiences unique to young adults, and so we at Peer Space want to demystify the process of self-improvement and self-exploration.
We aim to start our members’ journeys towards progress for themselves and for the people around them by leaving group feeling seen, heard, and recognized.
We strive to create the sense of community that people our age need by inviting members to get to know each other and making connections!
