Support Groups

We are stronger and better together. At Lakeland Regional Health, we offer a number of support groups that bring people together facing similar issues for inspiration, education and discovery. Involvement in a support group can be a valuable resource in your journey to health and wellness.

This support group is aimed at adults previously admitted to our Behavioral Sciences Center and are seeking follow-up support and fellowship. Meetings are held at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center every Monday from 5 pm – 6 pm.
