Great River Health Systems Offers Two New Support Groups

Great River Health has two new support groups.

Cancer support meetings

Cancer support meetings are scheduled from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. the second Monday of every month in the Hickory Room on the Garden Level of Great River Medical Center. Patients who have a cancer diagnosis, their families and friends discuss concerns, gain emotional support and share information on cancer-related topics.

There is no cost to attend. Reservations are appreciated but not required. Please call (319) 768-3701.

Therapy group for people with debilitating illnesses

Group members learn how to understand feelings and emotions related to their debilitating medical or mental health issues. With the support of others, they learn new skills for coping with their illnesses and improving their responses to life’s challenges.

Space is limited for the Debilitating Illness Therapy Group. The cost is covered by most insurance carriers.

Weekly meetings are held on the Great River Health campus. If you are interested in joining this group, please schedule an interview with Rob Kerr-Willbee, LMHC. Call (319) 768-3701.
