Support Group Meetings

Talk with fellow bariatric surgery patients about what’s on your mind. This is a great opportunity to find answers and support.

Meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month from 6:30 - 8 p.m., in the Duffy Classrooms at Port Huron Hospital, unless otherwise  noted.  The Duffy Classrooms are located just inside the main entrance of the hospital with convenient parking right outside the entrance. Please contact the Bariatric Center of Michigan at 810.989.3328 or HealthAccess at 800.228.1484 (Michigan Callers) for more information.

Support Group Videos:

MindPrep is a series of 10 pre-op and post-op videos designed to assist you with emotional and behavioral aspects related to weight loss surgery. These MindPrep videos will:

    • Inform you about the numerous non-medical issues related to obesity and the importance of addressing these issues to increase the likelihood of maintaining post surgical weight loss

    • Assist you in preparing mentally and emotionally for surgery while you are preparing for it physically with the help of your surgeon, nutritionist, and bariatric team

    • Help you to understand that, just as obesity negatively affects every area of your life, recovery from obesity requires attention to each of these same areas

    • Remind you that obesity is a family disease that requires family recovery

    • Provide you with specific ideas and tools offered to motivate you to follow through with the behaviors necessary to keep excess weight off for your lifetime
