PFLAG Johns Creek support groups meet on the third Tuesday of each and every month at the JOHNS CREEK location.
We know it can be intimidating, if not frightening, at first to share personal, real life struggles with strangers. Please know that you do not have to speak unless and until you feel comfortable. Some people just come and listen to others’ stories. Sometimes part of the process, especially in the beginning, is to just listen to others who have been where you are. PFLAG Johns Creek is a safe space! And it’s o.k. to cry (We have plenty of tissues on hand!). — We have three separate groups and each room has a sign identifying which group is meeting in that room. Choose the group that is best for you: • ***NEW** TWEENS (Room 313) – You asked for it and we listened! A special safe space for LGBTQ tweens (4th-7th grade; ages 9-13) to socialize with other tweens. This is NOT a facilitated support group but instead a social group with games, art, and other fun for tweens to enjoy all while being themselves. The Tween Social Group runs concurrent with the older Teen and Adult Support Groups. A parent must attend an Adult Support Group Meeting or remain in the 3rd floor main hallway. • TEENS (Rooms 322 and 323) – Support/discussion for LGBTQ teens and their teen friends/allies (8th grade and up; minimum age 13). • ADULTS (Rooms 320 and 315) – Support/discussion for LGBTQ adults and parents, families, and friends of LGBTQ a
