MHA Support Groups

At the Mental Health Association in Forsyth County we offer a variety of FREE, confidential support groups. Our groups are led by trained facilitators in a safe, friendly environment at MHA

If you are a college/university student who needs to observe one of our support groups as part of a class assignment, you must call and receive prior approval from Andy Hagler, Executive Director, 336-768-3880.

Why are support groups important?

Support Groups can Help by...


Sharing common concerns with other people who truly understand how you feel.


Learning by exchanging information to help you better understand what you are going through.


Developing appropriate, healthier coping skills.


Becoming your own advocate.


Developing informal support systems to help you cope during your time in need.
