What is a Community Connection Group?
Community Connection groups are different than cessation classes because each group is tailored for a certain population of people (stay-at-home parents, college students, etc.).
You will be able to connect and share your journey with others who are in your similar situation. Community Connection groups also do not follow a curriculum, but instead the facilitator provides education and resources that the group asks for, while also facilitating communication and connection between group members.
Community Connection Groups are free to attend, and can be attended on a drop-in basis. If you are looking for some extra support from like-minded peers to help you quit nicotine, you would be a great fit for a Community Connections group!
