Support Groups

Support groups provide a safe space to share the experiences, feelings and challenges you face when you experience a significant loss, a change in your lifestyle, or live with a chronic health condition. Support groups are also a good place to share coping strategies, exchange information, and learn about community resources.

We offer a number of support groups where you can receive mutual support and assistance from others in similar situations. All support groups are facilitated by professional or peer counselors. Specific support group descriptions can be found below.
