In my support group, I was having difficulty finding my voice. Slowly, I began to feel safe and learned to trust others with my feelings. I found that as I spoke in group, not only was I empowering myself, but others would join in and together we grew stronger.
Victims often feel very alone….like no one else has had the same experiences. Support groups can be a place to learn coping skills and lend support to others. You can gain strength from others in your group.
Some of our support group offerings:
