Sumter VA Clinic hosts Evening Women's Group

October 15, 2013

The William Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center’s Sumter Community-Based Outpatient Clinic is hosting a monthly Women’s Group. 

The purpose of the group is to provide the tools needed to more effectively deal with issues in life complicated by PTSD, depression, anxiety, or grief.

The group is open to all female Veterans.  The goal of the group is better management of symptoms to achieve improved quality of life.

“We are offering this group meeting for female Veterans who are coping with stress related to military service,” said Mental Health Social Worker Deborah D. Pearson.

According to Pearson, women Veterans need to have a group specifically designed to meet their needs.

“Goals of the group include improving communication, improving or repairing relationships, learning how to have fun, and developing the confidence to engage in enjoyable activities again,” said Pearson.

The group meets the first Thursday of each month from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic, 407 North Salem Ave., in Sumter, S.C.
