Help Coping for Carver County Residents
Coping with the changes during the pandemic brings challenges into our lives. Perhaps you feel lonely, sad or anxious due to the uncertainty of the situation. The Stay at Home order, meaning many of us are isolated with family members or alone, can bring challenges as well. 

Carver County’s First Street Center, our local community mental health center located in Waconia, offers County residents a free online video support group for those struggling with difficult emotions and thoughts during the COVID-19 crisis. This support group listens and provides caring advice for one other. This isn’t a therapy group where you deal with intense conditions. Rather, this group offers listening, understanding, and ideas on coping with the current pandemic on a day-to-day basis.  

Any County resident can participate free of charge, whether you’re a client of First Street Center or not. The group begins on Thursday, May 14 from 5:30-6:30 p.m., continuing every Thursday. You attend the group as needed, with no weekly commitment necessary.
 
Interested residents should call First Street Center to register at (952)442-4437.
