Support Groups

Offering Sharing, Caring and Coping

Millions of Americans find the sharing and caring provided through a support group can help them better cope with chronic illness or ease the struggle through the loss of a loved one.

Support groups provide participants with a variety of positive interaction, including

  • The benefit of experiences of other group members
  • Latest information in treatments or tips that improve the quality of life
  • An understanding and compassionate audience to whom participants can voice their fears, concerns and questions
  • Help in identifying the causes of symptoms or behavior
  • Encouragement to change attitudes and behavior

Reid Health staff members coordinate or participate in a variety of support groups to help persons coping with illness, chronic conditions or the loss of a loved one.
