Online and Facebook Support Groups Near Me
Perhaps you feel you have enough support from your friends? If that’s the case, that is absolutely wonderful! However, if you feel you need a little more companionship and community, there are many incredible groups at your disposal. Community groups can be especially helpful during those long nights (and days) to bounce ideas off, and just seek companionship. These groups hold a range of different people with a range of different perspectives! Consequently, they also hold a tonne of knowledge. If you need help connecting, please reach out.
