Get Support

Building insight and empathy in  safe and brave spaces.

Support Group

Together, we harness insights and build empathy in a confidential, safe space. We reject regret. Embrace humor. And champion self-care as a path to self-forgiveness. Something pretty amazing happens when people let their walls down. Relatives and friends begin to see the individual, not the illness. Loved ones find realistic ways to cope. And parents let go of the guilt that once made them believe they had the responsibility — and power — to fix their child's mental health.
