Connect With Others Who Understand
When you are having a problem, it always helps to talk with others who understand what you are going through. Support groups provide valuable assistance to people with mental illnesses and their family members, whether they need occasional or ongoing help.
Mental Health America of Franklin County (MHAFC) sponsors seven types of support groups in Franklin County. And, over 70% of the people attending our support groups reported a reduction in their anxiety levels and an increase in their coping skills.
