“Talk and Tea with Teresa” for Parents/Guardians. This Virtual Support Group is on THURSDAYS at 4pm. RSVP by calling 781-341-2252 X9453 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PARENTS AND GUARDIANS: Does it feel like Groundhog Day in your house yet? Each day a fresh chorus of “I’m bored!” and “I miss my friends!” and perhaps even “ I miss school” (gasp!). Do you find yourself losing track of what time it is, what day it is? Are your eyes getting bleary from binge-watching or lost in FB land? Let’s all hang out together in our collective misery to find support, comfort and laughter. Support groups have no obligations and no expectations except treating each other with tolerance and respect. Show up as you are - stay as long as you like. Drop in to our free, virtual support group for a safe space to connect with peers, moderated by a licensed mental health professional.
