The ARC is an amazing organization and it is getting better all of the time. I have been attending the support groups for anxiety disorders for about a year now. The ARC is the only place I can talk openly about my experiences with an anxiety disorder and get ideas from others in the same boat. The center has also recently added new features, such as an experiential group and a clinical group. They are also considering adding yoga, which has been shown to help many anxiety disorders. I cannot emphasize enough enough what a positive influence the center has in my life and the lives of others with anxiety disorders.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

an improvement in my outlook on anxiety disorders and my ability to cope with mine.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

finding new ways to live with an anxiety disorder, and finding new friends who are in the same situation.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always kind, understanding, and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build new branches and reach others with anxiety in a larger geographical region.

It is hard to find support groups for Trichotillomania and other Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors. The ARC is unique in offering a group where people can discuss these behaviors & disorders in a safe & nurturing environment. The referral services, activity & creativity groups, as well as educational programs are great ways to support people in the community who live every day with an anxiety disorder (or 3).

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my support group and by talking to participants after I did a presentation about Trichotillomania.

The group sessions at the Center helped give me a new perspective on my OCD and gave me a safe place to discuss my issues with others that were experiencing similar situations.

My son suffers from anxiety and OCD. The teenage anxiety support group that he was a part of, gave him a positive role model, coping mechanisms, and most importantly, showed him that there were others much the same. The group leader was always willing to take the extra time and help, whenever, and where ever he could. Along with the teenage group, the resources available to parents are also very helpful. This is a fantastic group that does a great job! Best value in West Michigan!
