Free 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 you do need to sign up with the appropriate form to receive the Zoom links.
