Mayo Clinic is privileged to be a part of the THRIVE Peer Support Collaborative through the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). This collaborative is a worldwide partnership between survivors, clinicians, hospitals and SCCM to learn how to create stable, useful in-person support groups.
Our peer support group is for anyone who has previously experienced critical illness or has had a family member who has been critically ill. If you are one day or 10 years out from your experience, we welcome you to come and explore your recovery journey with others.
Our group is held online through Mayo Clinic Connect. Just click the link below to be taken to the group.
On occasion we will offer face to face and alternative group experiences. Check back often for more information!
I can't tell you what a blessing this group has been to me. The advice and suggestions for sure, but late at night when the fear comes back...I reread the posts and here is proof things do get better." - Group participant
