Who is this Online Support Group Intended to Help?

  • This group is intended for those actively experiencing mental health challenges.
  • This group is not intended for family, friends, or providers as this may change the dynamic and safety of the group.
  • While people of all motivation levels are welcome, our discussions are pro-recovery, pro-treatment, and compassion-aligned.

    What to Expect In This Online Mental Health Support Group Community

    • The group facilitator will admit you into the group, giving a few minutes for everyone to join. The facilitator will then walk through the guidelines to ensure a safe and supportive environment. New members are encouraged to utilize Zoom emojis so the online community can welcome them. Each discussion is prompted with a quote or topic, though the conversation is fluid and participants can raise their hand to share. Most people have their cameras on, and being able to see all participants
      is strongly encouraged to foster community and connection. Each meeting is 1 hour long.
