Rape Response Support Groups are open to survivors of any type of sexual abuse/assault who reside in our service area which includes Dawson, Habersham, Hall, Forsyth, Lumpkin and White Counties. Our groups provide a safe space for survivors to learn more about trauma and healing, and to connect with and support one another as they move forward. Topics explored during group include: the impact of trauma, strategies for coping, relationship with self and others, and various healing modalities.
Beginning February 17th, 2021, our 8 Week Survivor Support Group for Adults meets each Wednesday from 6-7:30 pm in Gainesville. The group is currently meeting in person with COVID precautions; masks are required. For virtual options, please email email@example.com.
