Support Groups

Support Groups are peer-support communities that offer emotional and practical help.

Support Groups are peer-led support communities. We believe there is a strong correlation between mental, physical and spiritual wellness. Peer support is not professional therapy, but a group of leaders who have a heart for those who are hurting.

Support Groups that meet at Cornerstone are for anyone in West Michigan who could use some support.
