Kylie gives good and relevant feedback, but they do not help direct the conversation much. After introductions, some of our other facilitators read a list to remind us of the various issues people said they wanted to talk about and that is a really helpful thing, as my illness affects my memory. The other facilitators also go back to this list when the conversation wanes during the meeting itself, to help us pick a new topic of conversation. That said, I do think Kylie is a good facilitator and I'm grateful they have been willing to fill in, when needed.

The Center for Chronic Illness (CCI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization promoting well-being and decreasing isolation for those impacted by ongoing health challenges through support and education. CCI offers free, peer support groups facilitated by licensed mental health professionals and Master's level mental health interns. CCI's programs are designed to bring people together who live with different types of health challenges and diagnoses, recognizing the shared emotional experience of many who are impacted by chronic illness.
