Dear Friends of JACS,
You might be thinking that JACS has closed its doors. Absolutely not!
Support groups, individual and family counselling are continuing as usual. No change in date or time – except we will be meeting virtually – that is through the internet. We are using a virtual meeting space called Zoom (just like skype, but clearer). To download the Zoom program go to www.zoom.us and follow the easy instructions.
To help protect everyone’s anonymity, to attend a virtual meeting or meet with a JACS therapist for individual counselling, you will need a unique meeting id code. Contact information to get the code is beside each group.
ALL JACS SUPPORT GROUPS ARE FREE TO ATTEND
