Sharing experiences, challenges, talking about fears and celebrating triumphs are all a vital part of the healing process. Riverside encourages patients and their friends and families to seek the support of those who are going through the same things that you are. Research shows that support groups can reduce anxiety and its negative effects on overall patient health.

Please note that due to social distancing requirements, many groups are not meeting or are meeting virtually. Please contact the facilitator of the specific support group to find out if it is being held or if you would like information on how to participate in a virtual support group. You can also read our virtual support group meeting instructions.
