General Support Group
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to all of us having thoughts and questions around our life, livelihoods, family structure and plans for the future. The uncertainty surrounding our current crisis is daunting, and sometimes it feels as if we’re more isolated than ever. Therapists at CHRIS 180 know firsthand how many people are struggling with similar challenges, and we want to offer a safe space for people to come together, feel heard, and obtain support from others experiencing the same thing. Join us Fridays at 2:00 p.m. for a free virtual support group hosted by a licensed therapist.
High School Student Chat Group
This is really unfair! We are supposed to be winding down, planning for our summers, and looking forward to things including graduation, prom and end-of-the-year celebrations. If you’re a senior, you may be feeling like you’re especially missing out on milestones in your life. We’re here to tell you, you’re right and you’re valid! Therapists at CHRIS 180 have been supporting teens through challenges for over 39 years, and the crisis surrounding COVID-19 is no different. We hope you will join us for a free virtual teen support group Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. so that we can help youth of our communities feel supported by one another.
College Student Chat Group
College is supposed to be the best time of my life, they said. You’ll have so much freedom, they said. You’ll be able to meet and connect with friends, hang out in coffee shops, and host study groups at the dorm, they said. We’re all adjusting to the reality that COVID-19 had other plans for the beginning of 2020, but we also know that we will get through this. Therapists at CHRIS 180 have been supporting young adults through life’s challenges for over 39 years, and this pandemic is no different. We hope you will join us for a free virtual support group on Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. so that we can help you adjust, learn some coping strategies, and connect with other young adults who are experiencing the same thoughts, feelings and fears.
Caregiver Support Group
Taking care of children has never been easy, and the current state of affairs hasn’t helped! Now that caregivers are also adding homeschool teacher and 24/7 entertainer to the list of their standard roles, we know our families are struggling. It’s completely understandable why so many caregivers are having a difficult time adjusting to this new normal. Join a group of other caretakers and licensed therapists to discuss tips for survival, strategies for keeping your kids on a schedule, and gain some general support from people going through the same thing. We hope you will join us on Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m.
Online groups will be monitored and led by CHRIS 180 therapists. To make a private counseling appointment with a clinician, email Counseling.Center@CHRIS180.org. For additional resources, check out our blog.
