SSC INTENTIONAL SELF-CARE PEER SUPPORT GROUP

Saint Louis Support Center is now offering a diverse and inclusive support peer group every other Sunday from 2:00 - 3:30 PM, beginning December 2, 2018.  It is not a therapy group, but rather a "safe & brave space" for those in attendance to reflect on what is happening in their lives, learn new techniques for managing stress, and to share their wisdom with others.


“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence,

it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

–Audre Lorde
