August 2022 update: The Wellness Studio is committed to providing peer-led support groups that are built on a solid foundation of equity, using peer best-practices and operated by consistent facilitators that share this vision. We are redeveloping peer support groups at the moment and are reducing options during that process. New group offerings and schedules will be published soon and we are excited by the proposed topic areas and ideas.

Writing Your Way to Wellness
Day/Time: Friday at 3:30-5:00 (Please note new time)
