The group meets every Monday on Zoom from 6pm-7:30pm. Every 3 weeks, there will be a simultaneous support group meeting for parents of teens enrolled in the group.


Real Talk is free to join. To enroll in the group or to receive additional information, send an email to [email protected] or call 225-924-6621.
