Helpers Support Group


This support group is for First responders, medical providers, nurses, therapists, veterinarians, teachers, anyone helping others who are feeling overwhelmed, burnt-out, or just needing to find support from others going through the same things. This group is meant to support you and help you maintain your passion. Other helpers can often understand us and our reactions better than our families and friends. Join us for this brand new support group starting in February 2022.

As the group grows, we will separate it into separate professions if that seems to be more helpful for people. Sometimes this is meaningful and sometimes not. For now, all helping professions are welcome in the group.

You must pre-register for the group.
