Support people are traditionally invited to wait together in space outside of the group, however, attendees may invite support person into group if it will ease the attendee's group experience.

Please reach out if you have any special accommodations. All diverse needs of accommodations welcome. Making our group accessible for all needs is very important to us. If you need any special accommodations to feel comfortable please message us at info@peersupportspace.org so we can work to achieve this!
