Next Support Group: April 9

Our next online support group session meets Wednesday, April 9 at 8 p.m. EDT. The topic is "The Physical and Emotional Benefits of Relaxation." Participants can join online or via telephone. For information on registering and upcoming monthly topics, please click here.

Our monthly meeting features Mental Health Counselor Dana Nolan, who does a fantastic job of providing helpful information while listening and offering advice on issues that participants bring up that they are dealing with. Many of the participants are caregivers, and the sessions are a great way for them to connect with others living in the same situation.
