Connecting People in the gallatin valley via online counseling
Parenting in a Pandemic: A Happy Hour of Commiserating (Inactive)
Providence Mental Health is announcing the opportunity for parents who would like an opportunity to commiserate about the highs, the lows and the in betweens of raising kids during a pandemic virtually on Zoom! No need to RSVP; show up when you can and share if it serves you! Grab your favorite tea, juice or beverage and spend some time being an adult in this world again!
Although PMH clinicians will be moderating the Happy Hour for overall safety and appropriateness, this is not a therapeutic group, but rather an opportunity for parents to connect without their kids so they can share in the honesty that is the hard stuff of being parent, teacher, principal, school board, etc all while sitting in their living room. There will be no recording of who is present and if anyone feels that support beyond this commiserating forum, the moderator will be able to help explore options that will work for you.
No cost or obligation

Please let us know if you have any questions and join us this week for a supportive and informative group.
Healing Through Yoga (Inactive)
This 45 minute led yoga practice has been thoughtfully sequenced and holds space and intention for healing and increasing trust and safety in one’s own body for those who have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence. There is no expectation of disclosure and certainly open to those who love and care for survivors. The practice will begin with a facilitated mindful meditation which will then be followed by an intentionally sequenced asana practice by a certified yoga teacher and licensed professional counselor.

Survivors of Suicide Loss (Inactive)
A support group where teenagers can help one another cope after someone they know dies by suicide. Whether a group member chooses to listen or share their own experience, the choice is always up to them.
From 5:30-6:00pm, the facilitator will consult with guardians of minor attendees to explain group purpose and go over consents and liability forms. At this time, before the group begins, the meeting room will be open for games/snacks/refreshments to give attendees a chance to talk to each other informally and give an opportunity to get to know one another.
