We’ve been Helping New Jerseyans Find & Start Community (and Online) Mutual Support Groups for Over 33 Years  

Over 8,200 community support groups meet regularly throughout New Jersey. Contacts for several thousand of the mental health and addiction groups are provided here. For any of the thousands of other groups, for most any physical illness, disability, loss of a loved one, parenting situation, caregiver concern, traumatic experience, or any one of hundreds of other stressful life situations, just call us toll-free. If no group meets near you, we can often give you a national or an online group. Or, if you’re interested in joining with others to start a needed new group, we’ll show you how. To learn about the groups available, to help a friend or family member who is in need or feels “all alone,” look over the examples in your county or by type of group.
