Support Groups

*Important Notice About Our Support Groups:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in-person group meetings at all locations (Cooperstown, Oneonta, Herkimer, and Cobleskill) are currently suspended until further notice. In place of the in-person group meetings, we will hold virtual support groups for all locations via Zoom Video Conferencing, which you will be able to access on your mobile phone or computer.

For details on how to access the virtual support groups, please call (607) 547-3373, and a member of our staff will provide you the information over the phone or via your MyBassett.

As always, you may call our department at (607) 547-3373 for help or guidance, and we appreciate your patience as this situation evolves.
