Drop-In Conference Calls for Facilitators

AFSP hosts monthly conference calls for support group facilitators. These drop-in conference calls are open forums where facilitators can ask questions and learn from one another. Whether you are a new facilitator or have been running a group for years, the group can help you to be a more effective and creative facilitator. All facilitators are welcome.

The calls run for about one hour and there is no charge to join. Facilitators are welcome to "drop in" on the calls as often as they like, whether for a few minutes or for the whole hour.
