Our mission is to create a group where stories are shared, healing is witnessed, and recovery is strengthened.
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.
We will be meeting in the Francis Board Room at St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, MN the third Monday of each month from 6-7pm. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
Go in the front doors of the Francis Tower at St. Marys Hospital - the main entrance off of 2nd street (there should be some free meter parking available). When you get inside take a right at the main information desk (you can also stop there and as an attendant) that is just past the elevators. Go past the cafeteria, towards the end of the long hall and we will have a sign out for the group. See the attached map - X marks the spot!
To help us best accommodate you, please register to attend the support group by emailing Annie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
