Support Groups at Garnet Health

The ability to connect with others experiencing your medical situation provides you with the unique opportunity to be heard, understood and make meaningful connections. That’s what Garnet Health support groups offer. This holistic method of healing brings people together to form a support system offering strength, collaboration and emotional resilience. Sharing with others offers the forum to exchange stories, feelings, coping strategies and valuable first-hand information. 

At Garnet Health, we believe in taking a holistic approach to improving our patients’ well-being. Our health-driven support groups and community classes are just as important as our clinical care. This is why we offer several support opportunities to our patients, close to home in Orange and Sullivan County, NY.

What to Expect 

It’s normal to feel a little nervous, shy or overwhelmed when you first join a new support group; being vulnerable with strangers can have that effect. Take comfort in knowing you are in a safe space with others who are going through the similar situations. The act of simply listening can be just as beneficial as contributing to the conversation.
