DAILY. WEEKLY. WHENEVER YOU WANT IT.
NO INSURANCE OR REFERRAL NEEDED. JUST WALK IN.
Although each group is led by a trained facilitator, all LiveWell meetings function as peer-to-peer psychoeducational support groups. We do not provide professional counseling or emergency mental health treatment.
We're busy working hard to expand to new days and new locations, so check back soon!
All cancellations (holidays, weather) are shown above - so unless it's stated, the group is meeting.

LiveWell Support Group FAQ's
How do I know if LiveWell is right for ME?
A LiveWell support group is right for you if you are 19+ and can identify with any of the below:
Experience mild to serious depression
Experience persistent and/or recurring bouts of depression
Find it uncomfortable or have a difficult time talking about depression
Try to hide depression from others (because of shame and/or fear of discrimination)
Have a tendency to socially withdrawal or isolate
You're feeling well, but value the ongoing support of others for maintaining your own mental health care and/or reducing relapses of depression
When a LiveWell group may NOT be right for you:
If you are experiencing a serious bout of clinical depression, it is important that you seek the help of a qualified mental health professional in your area.
If you are afraid of harming yourself (or others), please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. We do not provide emergency mental health support.
Do I have to register or sign up?
No. LiveWell support groups are always open to the public, and walk-ins are welcome.
Are the groups really free?
Yes. (Donations to our nonprofit are always appreciated!)
Can I attend different groups on different days?
Yes. We know that many people want and need daily support from their peers and community.
What happens at a group meeting?
All LiveWell support groups follow the same format:
A topic or strategy-related activity
Group reflection/discussion, including how you can apply lessons learned from the activity to better monitor and manage your own moods.
Won't it be depressing to go to a depression support group?
No. In fact, people are often surprised to discover how positive and even uplifting the LiveWell groups can be!
Do I have to talk to people?
No one is ever required to speak, nor will they be prompted to do so. But we always offer a safe, friendly, and supportive environment.
How is confidentiality ensured?
All peers are introduced on a first-name-only basis; and commit weekly to our group promise of confidentiality.
