PASS (Prevention Awareness Support Services) and Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth (SAFY) of America , in connection with the Mental Health Recovery & Services Board of Allen, Auglaize and Hardin Counties has seven support groups, each with facilitators with training certificates for Support Group Facilitation by the Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic. 


Why community groups? Life can deliver unexpected turns of events that we have difficulty in understanding and coping with. It is in support group settings that life challenges can be discussed and ideas shared with others that have experienced similar situations to make trying times easier. Support groups are open to all and there is no cost or need for registration.
