Support Groups

Support groups provide confidential, comfortable environments  for people to share their problems, learn new information, have meaningful discussions, and better manage their issues.

MHG offers several peer-led self-help support groups which do not require preregistration and are free of charge. We also co-facilitate the Women’s Emotional Wellness group along with the Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro. Contact MHG at 336-373-1402 to learn more about what support groups are offered, to figure out which group is the right fit for you, and to get information about support group locations and parking.

All of our groups are peer-led by trained facilitators who have a diagnosis or experience with the group’s focus. These groups provide a welcoming, supportive environment where you can be yourself without fear of stigma or judgment, and a place where you don’t feel alone.
