Peer Support Groups

Our Peer Support Groups reduce the isolation of victimization by connecting young survivors with other young survivors who can share and support each other.

 

Each one hour group follows a trauma-informed, psycho-educational model, providing education on teen informed topics such as safety, self-care, coping, boundaries and self-esteem.

 

Peer Support Groups are available online and in person at BLOOM365 school and community-based sites across Arizona. 

If you have questions or would like more information on our support groups, please EMAIL, CALL or TEXT 1-888-606-4673.

 

All participants will need to complete an intake with a BLOOM365 advocate prior to their first session.

All advocacy services are supervised by LCSW and LPC Clinical Supervisors.

  • developing assessments

  • coordinating services with existing supports (school counselors, parents, caregivers, etc.)
