Support Groups

Find strength in numbers through a Community Wellness support or health-coaching group, learn about group-counseling options through MIT Medical’s Student Mental Health and Counseling Service, or talk to your mental health dorm liaison.

Group health-coaching workshops and classes

Group health-coaching workshops and classes are available on an ongoing basis. With a health-coaching class, you can benefit from support and accountability as you work on health-behavior changes with a group of people who have similar goals. You can even sign up with a friend.
