Fresh Hope Online Meetings

Fresh Hope support group meetings are now available online!

These meetings are like regular Fresh Hope meetings -- peer-led, following the Fresh Hope Tenets, with face to face interaction -- but online! Each meeting is limited to the first 12 participants who register. These meetings are open to anyone - those with a mental health challenge, and for their loved ones.

Meetings are every Wednesday at 7:30 pm Central Standard Time.

After your one-time registration, you simply log in to the link provided each week to attend. Meetings are run through an online meeting site that requires your device (computer, tablet, phone) has a camera, microphone, and speakers to enable you to interact with other participants in the meeting.

For more information, and to register for available meeting times, go to:
