Healing Connections Peer Support Group
To leave a message: 631-471-7242 ext. 1390
Healing Connections Peer Support Groups were created for and by people who experience emotional distress, voices and visions, extreme and/or altered states of consciousness, labels of psychiatry, substance use, and trauma/trauma responses. We come together to share information, hope, joys, fears, successes, and hardships in the “most” safe space we co-create to mutually support, heal, and grow together. We all are collectively responsible for the comfort of our group!
Currently our support group is offered online and by dialing in. To register, click here.
