Support Group for the Blind

Submitted

Lighthouse of Collier is hosting a Peer Support Group, held every Tuesday from 10 AM–12 PM, and facilitated by Rick Hart. Rick currently holds a Master of Arts in Community Agency Counseling degree from Saint Xavier University, Chicago, Illinois. He is a licensed Professional Counselor in Illinois and a member of the American Counseling Association.

If you are new to vision loss, you may be feeling overwhelmed and in need of some additional support. Your adjustment to vision loss can be facilitated by participation in a support group that brings people together who share a similar life challenge. Members learn to cope and feel less isolated as they make connections with others who can relate to their situation. Friends and family members can also benefit from attending a group as they are often in need of support too. In a safe and confidential setting, members discuss their feelings, share experiences and offer mutual support. They exchange ideas and information. The support group experience can be helpful in moving members toward acceptance and adjustment to life with a visual impairment.

The event is being held at Lighthouse of Collier, 2685 Horseshoe Drive South, Suite 211, Naples. For more information, please contact Rick at 239-430-3934.
