Hickory – Area women needing a confidential and safe space to share their challenges and stories are invited to attend the ongoing Support Group at Women’s Resource Center that meets each Wednesday from 11:30am to 12:30pm or 1:30pm to 2:30pm.
Women attending the free support group facilitated by Millie Kaufman, RN, PhD, APRN, say that participating helps to foster a feeling of community among members and reduce isolation and shame. The goal is to increase confidence, resilience and coping skills.
“New members are welcome to attend any Wednesday,” said Kaufman. “The group’s intent is to create an enjoyable, supportive and compassionate environment wherein members can share their concerns and participate in discussions of shared life lessons and challenges. Through this method, members help each other to identify problems and discover solutions, learning along the way new coping skills and different perspectives.”
Women who suffer from anxiety, depression, “winter blues,” or over-whelming workload, will find a welcome at this group. Individuals do not need a clinical diagnosis to attend. “This is a regular place to share, grow, and learn among a sisterhood with shared experiences,” added Kaufman.
Call (828) 308-2232 for more information or attend any Wednesday. Women’s Resource Center is located at 125 Third St. NE, Hickory.
