Parents of Teens (POTs) Support Group

Mondays, June 1, 15, and 29 – from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

If you’re raising a teenager with behavioral and/or emotional challenges, this might be the group for you. Parents of Teens is an opportunity to meet, talk, listen, and learn about the ups and downs that happen while raising a teenager. It’s a great place to get support from people who understand.

Please join our meetings from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Call Wendy DeRouen at 585-576-0134 for access.

Wednesday June 10, 17, and 24 – from 4:15 pm – 5 pm – for ages 17 and up

We encourage open and honest sharing of thoughts, emotions, and dreams among peers. To ensure a caring and safe environment, we provide a facilitator for every PEACE group. This facilitator is not a therapist and does not offer therapeutic advice.
