As a member of the Autoimmunegroup, you will receive peer support, which means that everyone around the table is experiencing the same kinds of symptoms that you do, so when we say that we understand, we really, truly do understand.
We listen and we speak from the heart.
Please utilize our Blog for some instant support, as well as to get a feel for the kinds of conversations that take place at our meetings.
Trying out a group meeting can be a little scary. It may help to know that while everyone is given the chance to share at each meeting, it is not a requirement. No one will ever force you to speak! While our guidelines provide a trusting and confidential place to share, comfort can be found in just being present and listening to the others in the group.
After 90 minutes with our group, members leave with some new coping skills and strategies as well as with a sense of comfort and belonging.
Our facilitator, Joanne, would be happy to answer any questions you may have about our meetings. She will then invite you to come to a group meeting so that you can decide if this type of support is right for you. You can reach us by phone at (908) 358-7167 (Mon. - Fri. 2pm - 7pm). You don't have to feel alone anymore.
