COVID-19 Update

Please see our events calendar for free, virtual, daily support groups taking place.

Wellness in the Woods has created a Virtual Peer Support Network with inviting and engaging Zoom meetings that promote mental wellness and community for people living with mental health challenges.  Each meeting is hosted by a peer specialist with similar life experiences.  Please head to our events calendar for a schedule.

The Crisis Line is sponsoring the Heart ❤️ Link, which is a free, virtual support group held daily at 9 am and 8 pm, supported by Mental Health Professionals Julie Leikvoll and Roxane Kampa.  Click here for the flyer and for more information.

Please visit our “Coping with COVID-19” page for information and resources to assist in coping with stress and anxiety due to the economic and emotional strain many are feeling at this time.

Please visit our Support page for telephone and texting support lines if you or someone you know is struggling to cope and needs to speak with someone.
