In a world that daily attacks our emotional and physical wellbeing, care teams, care pods, or support groups can save lives. They provide a space for belonging and healing. However, organizing and maintaining a strong support group can seem like an overwhelming task. Long time Icarus member Elliott Fukui will share a how-to start and keep a support group going. You will learn about the basics of starting a group, different structures and modalities, and how to overcome common challenges.
