MAP support groups

MAP offers various free support groups for UFT members in which members can come together to share their experiences, stories and tips and find comfort with each other. You don’t have to struggle alone; others may be dealing with a similar situation. Our support groups run throughout the school year and are held in a confidential space.

Building Better Habits

When we’re feeling stressed out, it’s easy to lose sight of our goals and turn to unhelpful behaviors to cope. Join your colleagues in a virtual wellness support group to learn ways to understand what’s holding you back from building better habits and establish a plan to keep you on track towards achieving your goals.

Managing Anger

While anger is a natural emotion, if left unresolved, it can feel like a volcano erupting inside you and can lead to alienation from friends, colleagues and loved ones.
