Support Groups

We all struggle with challenges that affect our mood, emotions, and overall well-being. Support groups provide an opportunity for people experiencing similar challenges to come together under a common purpose.

Benefits of participating in a group setting include feeling less lonely, isolated, or judged which can reduce distress, depression or anxiety.

Links to virtual groups will be provided upon registration. Participants must have completed an intake at a CHD Outpatient Behavioral Health Clinic prior to participating. This can be completed during walk-in hours at any of our clinic locations Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-noon, or by calling the numbers listed below.
