Support Groups

Find a place where you can hear stories from people with similar experiences.
If you want to, share a bit about your own story as well.

PFLAG support groups are open to everyone, at any stage in their journey, and are an opportunity to listen to others and have others listen to you without judgement.

Hearing responses from someone who was going through what I was going through made all the difference in the world. I felt like I wasn’t alone

What are support groups like?

When you come to an in-person (or virtual) support group, you’ll be greeted by a trained facilitator. They are there to make sure you can say as little or as much as you like without fear of being judged or forced to speak. Many people find that support groups become the first place they can voice their worries and fears and find others who can relate to the experience and offer advice.

Unlike a therapy session, we’re not here to give you advice. We believe listening and having a place to share your story is the most important first step.
