“Closed” Support Groups for Parents of Adults (23 Years Old & Older)

Online "Closed" Support Groups meet for a series of consecutive weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly meetings. Each group is limited to 10-12 participants who pre-register and attend each meeting in the series. The groups offer a safe environment where participants can talk with like-minded peers, share similar issues and concerns, and celebrate successes. The closed support group also provides an opportunity to establish and develop connections with the same group of individuals over time.

If the "Closed" group you are interested in states "There are no upcoming events at this time", or if the registration of a program is "FILLED",  please sign up for early notification. Before a new round of your favorite closed support group begins, we will send you an early notification email to give you a chance to register before we open up registration to the general public.
