Patient Support Groups
You’re Not Alone
We all face struggles in our life. Whether it’s an ongoing fear, a chronic illness or a sudden death in the family, we want to assist you through troubled times. That’s why we provide a space for you to talk with others who have similar experiences. Valley Baptist’s support groups are designed to give you a place to share your experiences and learn from others in an open, caring and helpful environment.
