Listings for Counseling/Mental Health / Support Groups

Counseling/Mental Health

There are a myriad of ways to get support for your counseling or mental health needs. Though there are many private pay options, non-profit organizations and businesses can offer counseling and mental health services at low to no cost, as well. You can participate in counseling and mental health opportunities in a variety of ways including calling a crisis line, attending a support group, or participating in individual and/or family counseling.

Support Groups

Support groups are a valuable resource to get the mental and emotional support you need based upon what you are going through in your life. These support groups can be for caregivers, those experiencing an illness, those experiencing grief and loss, and more. Support groups have a trained group facilitator and attendees discuss their experiences and support each other.
