Adult Support Groups

Offering Community, Comfort, and Hope

Getting Started

We ask that you attend an initial informational session prior to coming to your first support group meeting. This meeting will help you understand more about Michael’s Place and how our groups work. It also helps Michael’s Place learn how to best support you. Please call us at (231) 947-6453 or email us at GoodGrief@MyMichaelsPlace.net with any questions.
