Support Groups


Venango County Human Services works hand and hand with various local support groups. Groups are organizations of people who share a common experience, or medical issue like depression or anxiety, who meet together to discuss their experiences, share ideas, and provide emotional support for one another. Most groups are led by a member with training in facilitating group discussions.
