Online Support Groups

If you live with a mental illness or care about someone who does, you are not alone. At our online Alaska-wide mental health support groups, you can speak with others who understand firsthand what you're going through. By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you can gain hope and feel a sense of connection. You'll benefit from other’s experiences, discover your inner strength and empower yourself by sharing your own experiences in a non-judgmental space. Participants can join by computer, tablet or smartphone. There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is necessary.
