Support Groups' Information Available Online

Article excerpt

Byline: Rich Ray, Times-Union staff writer

Consider this an open call for those who run support groups on the First Coast.

This is also a formal announcement for those seeking assistance from support groups.

First Coast Community is launching First Coast Support, a one-stop hub for support group information and meeting times.

Offered by First Coast Community, and facilitated by Tom Golatz, First Coast Support will feature a diverse array of support groups, including those focusing on weight loss, medical and mental health issues, grief, loss, divorce, physical and emotional pain, career change and much more.

Support group leaders can create a First Coast Community presence for their group and add support group meetings directly to our First Coast Support Calendar. Those seeking help will be able to find meeting times and locations, contacts and other important information for each group. www.firstcoastcommunity.com, keyword: support
