Support Group

Singing River Weight Loss Center hosts support groups monthly in Ocean Springs, as well as periodically via Zoom, led by wellness dietitians.

About the Bariatric Support Group

Our monthly bariatric support group is perfect for:

  • Anyone considering bariatric surgery
  • Those who have previously undergone bariatric surgery
  • Family members of bariatric surgery patients

Studies show active participation in activities like bariatric support groups help patients lose and maintain weight better than if they do it alone. All sessions are led by one of our Wellness Dietitians.

How to Attend

All events are FREE and will be held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 5:30pm.
