Family Support Groups

Support groups provide an opportunity for families to get together, share a meal, gain some new information and have fun with their family!

Groups provide an opportunity for parents and young people to meet and interact with their peers, in a group with no judgment or condemnation, regardless of behavioral health challenges they may be experiencing.

We will share a meal together—potluck items listed by each month. We have a topic of discussion or activity. Kids of all ages welcome.

If questions, please call 308-237-1102
