The Palliative Care Veteran Support Group “Finding a Path Through the Wilderness” is a new support group for Veterans living with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.

Friday, September 13, 2019

The Houston VAMC has a new support group for Veterans living with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. The Palliative Care Veteran Support Group “Finding a Path Through the Wilderness” will be held every Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. on the first floor of Building 108A. The support group is also available via telehealth at select VA Community Based Outpatient Clinics.

Members will meet other patients, explore their individual coping and grief processes, and gain knowledge and skills to help themselves and each other.

Each session will include a rotating topic with coping skills education, as well as time for open discussion and support.

  • Stress & Coping
  • Mood Management
  • Social Supports
  • Quality of Life
  • Leaving a Legacy

Interested Veterans should contact the group facilitator, Dr. L. Alexis Correll, palliative psychologist at 713-791-1414, extension 26948, to register for the support group.

MEDVAMC offers a variety of support groups for Veterans and their family members.
