Online support groups

Sometimes, it’s just nice to talk to other people who are going through the same thing you are. It’s common to think that you’re alone in your experiences, but when you get to chatting with others, there’s comfort in hearing just how “normal” your reactions are to certain situations. You don’t have to drive to a church or high school auditorium after hours to join an in-person support group in dusty folding chairs. There are online platforms like Circles Up that let you join an online support group, led by a therapist. You just answer a few questions to get matched with the right group and then pay $20 a week to join in on the discussions.
