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.

Why Participate in a Support Group?

Because it can help you:

  • Feel less lonely, isolated or shamed

  • Reduce distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue

  • Talk openly and honestly about your feelings

  • Improve skills to cope with challenges

  • Gain a sense of empowerment or hope

  • Learn about emotional and practical resources

  • Strengthen or develop faith in Christ
