Injury Support Group

When I got hurt I work, I did not know what to expect.  I figured I would heal then go back to work.  However, that is not quite how it went down.  My back injury was much worse than I expected, and recovery time much longer. Many different emotions overcame me.  There were so many [...]

Support Group Forums

Thinking about joining a support group forum? The good news is that there are zillions of groups out there. Well, maybe not zillions, but enough that you will have your pick! You may wonder if there is a group specifically geared towards what you you are experiencing. More good news…online forums cover a wide array of topics (from depression, anxiety, marital problems, to parenting and coping with miscarriage).

Some people really enjoy support group forums, as compared to traditional support groups, because they can remain anonymous. This format may also be useful for people who have difficulty getting out to group given where they live or due to physical limitations. Further, using an online support group forum can be more convenient in terms of scheduling as well as allowing one to chose how often they want to engage in a group. Support group forms, like in-person support groups, allow individual to feel a sense of community, to realize they are not alone in their struggles, and to give feedback and support to others.

If you are looking for a support group forum you can do so in a few ways. Let’s say you have been dealing with bipolar disorder. You could do a general search for “support group forum” or you could do a search for bipolar disorder forums. The later later may point you to sites that specifically only deal with bipolar disorder. Either approach can work, but you may have a preference for one for various reasons. For example, if you not only have biploar disorder but are also experiencing relationship difficulties, utilizing a site that has varied forums (where you just need to create one account) might be more suitable than finding two sites (one for each difficulty) and creating two accounts. However, if you truly have one area of concern and don’t want to search for the “appropriate” forum to join the more specific sites may be more useful in your needs in a support group forum.
