Coping groups for Caregivers during COVID-19 from MassSupport
By DebraMcDonagh / December 21, 2020

MassSupport Network provides free community outreach and support services across the state in response to the unprecedented public health crisis, COVID-19.

MassSupport is a Crisis Counseling Program (CCP), funded by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) and managed in partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and Riverside Trauma Center, a program of Riverside Community Care.

This series of Coping support for caregivers  offers emotional support, coping strategies, resources, and up-to-date information during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

These groups are anonymous, confidential, and free.

What to Expect:

  • A virtual group of 10-12 of your fellow caregivers
  • Guided discussion of your reactions to the pandemic
  • Strategies on coping skills and ways to manage stress
  • Participants highly encouraged to stay for the entire time (90 minutes)

There are two ways to sign up for a Coping Group:

  • Call the MassSupport toll free line at 888-215-4920. Leave a message with your name, contact information (phone number and email address, if you have one), and the date and time of the group you want to attend; or
  • Click the link below for the group you want to attend. 

Instructions to join the group will be shared at least 24 hour prior to the scheduled group.
