We all need connection and support to get through hard times. Come join me the second Thursday of every month at 12 NOON through ZOOM video. The emotional support derived from support group participation can help reduce stress, which can have a positive impact on health. Further, people may greatly benefit from the information sharing that takes place in a support group. They may learn how to manage symptoms, develop better coping skills, and communicate more effectively.

This support group is best for people going through a situational crises such as but not limited to: pandemic related stress, divorce, unemployment, single parenting , widowhood, caregiving , and surviving a loved one’s suicide.
