Your platform isn't very user friendly for me. Zoom is so much better.

Angela is a really good group leader. She makes us all feel very important and she makes us feel heard. It'll be really nice at the group could be linked into 90 minutes instead of 60 minutes. It will be even better if the group will be offered once week instead of twice a month.

Center for Chronic Illness

The Center for Chronic Illness (CCI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization promoting well-being and decreasing isolation for those impacted by ongoing health challenges through support and education. CCI offers free, peer support groups facilitated by licensed mental health professionals and Master's level mental health interns. CCI's programs are designed to bring people together who live with different types of health challenges and diagnoses, recognizing the shared emotional experience of many who are impacted by chronic illness. Please note, because we are a Seattle-based organization, all support groups are scheduled on Pacific Standard Time (PST).

The Center for Chronic Illness provides support and education for those impacted by ongoing health challenges through our professionally-facilitated peer support groups. Although the information and support provided can be psycho-educational in nature, our support groups are not counseling or therapy groups, and we are not providing healthcare services. You should not use the information contained herein for diagnosing or treating any health condition. Participation in our facilitated peer support groups does not create a psychotherapist/patient relationship. You should always consult with a doctor and / or other health care professional for medical advice or information about diagnosis and treatment. If you are in a need of immediate medical attention or crisis support, please call 9-1-1 or the National Suicide Hotline at 1-(800) 273-8255 without delay.
