"People at a support group meeting"No matter your walk of life, you deserve support through others that have shared the same experiences as you – especially close to home.

At Garnet Health, we offer a wide range of support groups, educational classes and events to our patients and local community including, but not limited to:

  • Alzheimer’s Support Group
  • Bariatric Surgery Pre-Op Class
  • Circle of Hope Family Support Group
  • Diabetes Prevention Program
  • Lung Cancer Support Group

Support is an important part of the healing process and is a valuable resource for individuals who are coping with a variety of challenges in their lives. It provides a sense of community, comfort and encouragement within a safe space. Some benefits of support groups include:

  1. Emotional support
    Group members can provide empathy and understanding, which can diminish the feeling of loneliness and the need to self-isolate.
  2. Sense of belonging
    Those who have dealt with difficult life experiences often feel like they are outcasts. Support groups can provide a sense of community of people who understand what they are going through.
  3. Providing hope
    Support group members are all going through the same thing, yet live on different spectrums of the healing and growth process. A new member may find hope for themselves after having conversations with others who are actively overcoming obstacles.

If you or someone you love needs support, please visit our list of classes and events to find options that are best suited for your needs.
