New Hope Support Groups

 

We offer free, confidential support groups for adults living with mental illness or mental health challenges where participants learn from each others' experiences, share coping strategies, and offer each other understanding and encouragement. The groups are led by trained facilitators who also live with mental illness.

 

New participants are welcome anytime and need not register in advance. Each group offers a warm and welcoming environment, where participants are free to share if they like or just listen.
