Time: 7 – 9 p.m.
Facilitator: Nancy Fawcett, PhD, LPC
Fee: $20 each session

The St. Louis County Depression and Bipolar Support Group has been meeting every Wednesday evening at Care and Counseling for the past four years.

It is a supportive group in which members feel free to share their feelings with others who know what they’re going through. They share information about their therapists and psychiatrists; medications and side effects; relationships with family and friends; lifestyle changes, etc.

Each member is also encouraged to take an active part in getting well by educating themselves about their disorder and the medications they are taking.

If you’re interested in attending or would like additional information, call Dr. Nancy Fawcett at 314-336-1048 or email her at nfawcett@careandcounseling.org.

Some health insurance plans may cover the costs of support groups. Please contact your provider for more information.
