This bi-weekly support group is designed for friends and family members who have a loved one with depression, anxiety or other mental health challenges.

There is no charge for this group as it is an outreach of Imagine Well Being liveimagining.com. Each session will be a stand-alone (you do not need to commit to every session) and friends are welcome to join at any time.

The group is designed to support family and friends with simple tools and skills in the evidenced-based tradition of mindfulness (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Reduction) https://www.umassmed.edu/cfm/mindfulness-based-programs/mbsr-courses/about-mbsr/history-of-mbsr/ .

The group will provide mindfulness skills and resources clinically proven to reduce stress in mind, body and soul along with the benefit of supportive community. It is not a therapy group but may have therapeutic benefits.

During our 90 minute gatherings we will experience:

Breathing skills to reduce stress
Mindfulness meditation practices
Gentle chair yoga (available to all ages)
Mindful listening skills
Personal reflection time
Resources and tools for daily use

CARE Support group celebrates an unlimited welcome to all people from every sexual orientation, gender identity, and faith tradition, including secular and humanist frameworks.
