Monthly Connections

 

Monthly Connections

EDF’s community support and education programs are designed to offer a message that reassures all who come through our doors that “You are Not Alone.” EDF has provided a platform to voice struggles and support, to connect individuals and bring about awareness, to shift misinformed opinions and relieve the stigmas associated with these illnesses.

As a bridge between our support groups and our educational workshops, EDF is pleased to offer our new Monthly Connections! These offer a free platform for individuals in the community to have focused discussions on topics that matter to them. The Monthly Connections are structured a bit differently than our support groups and use updated guidelines for sharing respectfully.

You must be at least 18 years old to attend Monthly Connections, with the exception of the Adolescent Monthly Connections.
