Young Adults Support Group

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The group will start with an icebreaker activity that introduces attendees to each other. Following this activity, the group facilitator will present hot topics pertaining to young adults, such as graduating, living on your own, applying for jobs, creating a social life, and other situations that are made more difficult while trying to balance OCD. This will encourage free flowing discussion to allow young adults to interact with each other, discuss what difficulties they're facing, and offer solutions that have worked for them. Before the group finishes, attendees will be invited to share contact information with others in the group to encourage interaction after the conference is over. This will allow the young adults to build friendships that continue to provide support once the conference ends.
