Advocates is now offering several virtual support groups via Zoom. These include mental health support groups as well as social and recreational groups. Facilitated by members of Advocates Peer Specialist team, these support groups are open to anyone in the community, not just individuals served by Advocates, and participation is confidential.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Jeffrey Wolfsberg, Director of Recovery and Peer Support, JWolfsberg@Advocates.org, or the group facilitator.

If you require an ASL interpreter, please contact Jeffrey Wolfsberg, JWolfsberg@Advocates.org or Sharon Hirt, SMacLean@Advocates.org.
