Mental Health Cafe is a mutual aid space centering informal conversations and peer support on mental health, mental illness, madness, neurodiversity, disability, trauma, and other related experiences.
Inside Our Minds primarily uses Zoom for virtual meet-ups. Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool that connects people through their browser, through the Zoom app, or even over the phone.
You can create a free Zoom account by visiting https://zoom.us/ (registration is not required but can make connecting easier). It may also be helpful to download Zoom to your computer, install the app on your smartphone, or bookmark / write down the number to call and meeting ID number for ease in joining calls.
To join from your computer or smartphone, click the Zoom link when it is time for the meet-up and follow the on-screen prompts. You can also join a test meeting here: https://zoom.us/test.
To join via phone, dial the number provided and wait for audio prompts requesting a meeting ID. Once requested, enter the meeting ID followed by the pound key (#).
Zoom has the ability to communicate via video, audio, and/or text, with integrated options for live closed captioning. You can choose to turn off your video and/or audio.
If Zoom’s servers are unable to handle increased traffic due to COVID-19, we will explore other avenues for meet-ups.
