Anchorpoint’s groups reach a variety of ages and issues experienced. Some groups offered are for
those struggling with mental health difficulties. Other groups are workshops for the average individual
with an interest in a particular area.
Benefits of joining a group:
• A sense of hope and that you’re not alone
• The chance to learn from experts and group members
• An opportunity to connect with and learn from others
• A place to meet people with like issues or interests
Some of these groups/workshops are free due to generous grants, for others a donation is appreciated, and in some cases your health insurance will cover you. Scholarships are also available. Do not let lack of financial resources keep you from registering.
