PEER SUPPORT MEETINGS 
Persons recently diagnosed may benefit by hearing from others who have been there. There are no providers or presenters at peer support meetings. In an effort to reach those living in surrounding towns and rural or suburban areas the peer support meetings will be conducted at various locations across the region. Peer Support Meetings are self-directed and spouses or significant others are encouraged to attend.  Advance registration is not required for Peer Support Meetings. Always check the NEXT Meeting page of this website for each month's meeting location.

Schedule of Peer Support Meetings:   
The dates are always 2nd Thursday evenings of the month, and the time is always 7-8:30pm. Check the NEXT Meeting page for location.
