Support Groups

Looking for support? Come and make important connections to others who:

  • understand the challenges you face and the opportunities ahead
  • feel the same way you do
  • have had the same experiences
  • will help you learn new coping skills
  • will share their successes and strategies with you

Groups are led by a trained facilitator who is a family member, parent or consumer. If you interested in becoming a support group facilitator, please visit  Leader Trainings in the education section.
