Thank you for your interest in wanting to attend our Online Support Groups.

The groups are held virtually at the moment. We require that a new participant first attend our Newcomers Group on Wednesdays at 6:00pm. Please fill out the form below and a link for our Newcomers Group will be sent to you within 24-48hrs.

After you have completed the Newcomers Group, a second link will be sent to you immediately following the group. The second link is your permanent link and will provide you with unlimited access to your Diagnosis Support Group on both Wednesdays and Fridays.

  • Treat each other with kindness and compassion. Most of us are feeling vulnerable.

  • Respect the opinions and experiences of others as we want them to respect ours.

  • Don’t monopolize. We are generous in the sharing process.

  • Don’t judge. Instead, we try to put ourselves in the other person’s shoes.

  • Are patient. Each of us is trying to do the best we can at a given moment.

  • Are good listeners. We all want to feel heard.
  • Don’t tell someone else what to do. We Let others come to their own conclusions.

  • Don’t give advice. What is helpful is speaking from our own experiences.

  • Maintain confidences so that each of us feels completely safe to share.

  • Understand that the recovery process is unique and personal for each of us.

  • Maintain an environment that is hopeful and optimistic. If we don’t have hope, we stop trying.
