SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN
For Women, About Women, By Women
The battle with mental health is endless, especially when harassment cases have dramatically increased, and when society continues to perpetuate unrealistic body standards. The damaging idea that women ‘feel too much’, or ‘overreact’ are still alive and well inculcated in our social roots to this day.
Our support groups are a safe, judgement-free space aimed at alleviating the suffering of women who are facing emotional distress. Each session will consist of upto 10 women having open conversations about self-care, coping strategies and mental health care. This is a place for like-minded individuals to support each other, to find strength in each other, and more importantly to celebrate each other’s success.
Why join a Support Group?
Support Groups are an affordable way to reduce feelings of distress, anxiety or depression. It equips participants with skills they can use to cope with challenges. It’s an opportunity to stay motivated, get expert feedback, and gain a sense of empowerment and hope.

Sign Up & Register:
