Support Groups

What are Support Groups?

Our Support Groups are designed to provide a safe, healing space where we can connect with others and find a supportive community. Connecting with a supportive group can help us with feelings of loneliness, shame, guilt, and fear; can reduce stress, depression, anxiety, and despair; and can help us practice healthy coping skills for our struggles.  

1st & 3rd Wednesdays, Starting October 4 • 10:45 am – 12:00 pm • Room 5 (Bldg C)

Do you suffer from an autoimmune disease? Are you sometimes frustrated that family and friends don’t understand your pain because you don’t look sick? If your answer is yes, this is a group for you!
