HOPE FOR HURTING PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS -
Hope for Hurting Parents (HHP) is a faith-based and facilitator led support group open to North Lake Presbyterian Church members as well as open to the surrounding community. All are welcome.
Our mission is to provide comfort, encouragement and hope for hurting parents in a safe and confidential setting.
Our group is for parents (and/or grandparents) who are estranged from their children or who have children of any age ( teen or adult) who struggle with mental health issues, self-harm, eating disorders, substance use, gender confusion, suicidal thoughts and more.
This journey with your loved ones may be accompanied by: Strong emotions - Fear, Guilt, Shame, Powerlessness, Grief and Loss, Worry, Anxiety, Hopelessness, Struggles With - Enabling, Isolation, Trust, Control. Expectations
Damages to - Marriages and Family, Relationships, Health, Employment and Finances, Spiritual Well-Being.
We will cover subjects including but not limited to grief and loss, enabling, coping with fear, anger, hope, worry and anxiety, self-care and more. We will hear from other parents who have traveled this road before. We will empower each other to set healthy boundaries for ourselves, our families, and for our children. Our goal is to show parents that they can walk alongside their children, love them well and move from a place of barely surviving to thriving.
HHP will meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 10:00-11:30 am in the Faith room.
