Welcome to the Health/Wellness
Support Group Meeting/Services Directory
Sharing with others in a caring support group can help you and your loved ones find peace, comfort, and strength in dealing with illness and disease, especially in the case of a new diagnosis. Support groups can provide knowledge and understanding in an environment of mutual respect for privacy by listening and sharing with those who might be facing a similar situation. However, it’s important to always contact your doctor for medical advice. If you have questions about the following listings, please contact George Mirich (803-1409 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
