support groups

Support groups are a space where individuals can come together to share their stories, experiences, and lives in a way that helps reduce isolation and loneliness. Oftentimes, we think we are struggling alone, but support groups help us see that there are others who may dealing with similar situations and who in turn can help us get better.

To help Michiganders through the mental health challenges of COVID-19, behavioral health

professionals at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services created the 

Stay Well Crisis Counseling Program, funded by a federal grant.
