Virtual Peer Support Group

About

GGH has proudly been running VIRTUAL peer support groups facilitated by Carm since September 2020 and has had over 40 new participants sign up throughout the last year. We all have experienced loss in one form or another. We are also constantly growing and evolving the relationship we have with ourselves as it changes throughout these periods of loss and self-discovery. We gotta take care of ourselves!

This group particularly focuses in the regaining a sense of self and proudly owning our stories with the support and validation of others while using vulnerability as our power. Content for group is curated based on the overall needs of the group through the initial screening process (phone call) when you do sign up via email. It has been a pleasure to have previous participants join again and continue to demonstrate self-growth while also being incredible supports for new participants. GGH currently has two groups running.

Tier one: Intro to Group – Foundations of GGH

Tier two: Intermediate group with more in depth content/topics discussed for those who have attended more than 3 previous groups.
