MUHSEN Support Groups

9 women and 1 men are sitting in a circle and participating in a professionally-led MUHSEN support group hosted at the masjid.

Support Groups led by licensed professionals are important to have within the community to support community members that need advice, someone to talk to, or the need to meet people they can relate to. Caregivers, siblings, as well as individuals with disabilities need an outlet.

MUHSEN can provide a professional to facilitate an in-person or virtual support group in your community.

An Environment of Trust and Care

MUHSEN Support Groups are conducted both in person and online.
Past Support Topics have included the following:

. Caregiver Burnout
. Marriage & Having a child with special needs
. Dealing with extended family
. Effect of having a child with a disability on siblings
. Plans beyond High School for your child with a disability

In the current COVID-19 situation, all our support groups will be held virtually until further notice.

“I guess you never know what you might get from a support group going in but it’s important as parents with complex roles to put ourselves out there and seek that support. It always seems like it will be more awkward in our minds than it actually is.

From the time we walked into the room we were met with smiles from like-minded individuals. We shared jokes only families like ours get. Yes even some tears discussing the most bizarre realities that somehow still uniquely bond us. Anytime I go to a MUHSEN group session I always come out relieved, lighthearted and more positive.
