NDBIN Support Groups Move Online Due to COVID-19
NDBIN saw a need for support groups to continue throughout the pandemic crisis affecting our nation and got feedback from survivors, providers, and family members. Meetings will be held once a month, on the last Monday at 2:00 pm Central. The topic of attendee's choice is chosen the month prior. A brief presentation and sharing of items is done by NDBIN and then support group members are able to share their experiences after. We try to keep these groups around an hour. Please join us – all are welcome!
