Support Group Information
Our Parent Peer Support Group will not be meeting this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. This group typically meets on Wednesdays from 6:45 to 8:15 p.m., and is intended for parents with a middle or high school child who is challenged with mental health symptoms. The peer support group is designed to be a safe, confidential place to share your experiences and learn from others. The group is facilitated by Nancy Dever and Debbie Gillespie and will be held at Wayne Presbyterian Church, Room 207, 125 E. Lancaster Ave, Wayne. For questions or to RSVP, contact Nancy Dever at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-574-3319.
