LEWISBURG, Tenn. — As a resource to community members in dealing with life's challenges, Marshall Medical Center (MMC) and Senior Life Solutions have partnered to offer a free support group for those experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Beyond Tomorrow is a new support group that will meet once per month in Lewisburg. Meetings will be facilitated by counselors and therapists with Senior Life Solutions, an outpatient therapy program at MMC for seniors coping with emotional health needs.

“We are pleased to make this new resource available to those in our community,” said Todd Fehrman, LPC/MHSP, a licensed professional counselor who works in the outpatient program at MMC. “Our vision is to create a welcoming setting for individuals to learn effective coping strategies to care for their mental health, either by sharing, discussing or simply listening.”

Individuals are encouraged to attend the support group meetings if they experience feelings such as:

  • Concerns about health
  • Difficulty sleeping or eating
  • Excessive worry
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Grief
  • Loneliness
  • Sadness
  • Thoughts of harming oneself*

The support group will hold its first meeting on Tuesday, February 8, at 6 p.m. at the Lewisburg Recreation Center located at 1551 Mooresville Highway in Lewisburg. Attendees should use the Sports Complex parking area and entrance. Future meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the same location.
