Support Group for Caregivers

The first 2019 Caregivers of the Mentally Ill (COMI) Support Group is meeting on Monday, January 14. The purpose of this support group is to share our stories and struggles, to give and receive comfort along with encouragement, and to receive God’s peace and hope. Our aim is to have a more positive, joyful life despite challenges of mental illness. It is a place to share and listen.

If you are in the Thousand Oaks area, please join them (please RSVP so they have enough handouts). They will meet from 7:30pm – 9:00pm in the Library of Chinese Christian Church of Thousand Oaks (CCCTO), 218 W. Janss Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360. Phone (805) 379-0882. This support group will be meeting every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month.
