As the name goes, members support each other through tough and challenging times with the help of a professional who facilities each session. Members support each other with listening, sharing of information and experiences, professional and personal strategies are exchanged and each comes out of the session feeling stronger, less isolated, empowered and more hopeful. Support groups help people to cope better and make connections with people with similar challenges and specific issues. Members continue to network even out of the sessions. We will be starting new groups for parents with young children; parents with teens; and parents with children with special needs.
