Care Support Group

Bi-Weekly on Sundays, 4 - 5:30pm
@ Crossroads UMC
Upcoming Schedule: May 19 and June 9

This bi-weekly support group is designed for friends and family members who have a loved one with depression, anxiety or other mental health challenges. There is no charge for this group as it is an outreach of Imagine Well Being liveimagining.com.

Meets every other Sunday from 4-5:30pm. Upcoming meetings are March 31 and April 14.

The group is designed to support family and friends with simple tools and skills in the evidenced-based tradition of mindfulness (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction).

The group will provide mindfulness skills and resources clinically proven to reduce stress in mind, body clinical studies along with the benefit of supportive community. It is not a therapy group but will have therapeutic benefits.

During our 90 minute gatherings we will experience:

  • Basic mindfulness tools including:
  • Breathing skills to reduce stress
  • Mindfulness meditation practices
  • Gentle chair yoga (available to all ages)
  • Mindful listening skills
  • Compassion-based affirmation
  • Personal reflection time

CARE Support group celebrates an unlimited welcome to all people from every sexual orientation, gender identity, and faith tradition, including secular and humanist frameworks.
