Meeting Guidelines

To keep the online support group a comfortable, safe, and inviting place for all, we require participants to abide by the following guidelines. These are reviewed with the group at the beginning of each meeting.

What is said in the meeting, stays in the meeting
This is the essential principle of confidentiality and must be respected by all participants.

Differences of opinion are OK
We are all entitled to our own point of view.

Use "I" language
Share from your personal experience, say "this is what helped me" or "when I was faced with this problem, I ..." - don't give advice unless asked to.

Its OK not to share
People do not need to actively participate; much can be gained by just listening.

Its everyone's responsibility to make the group a safe place to share
Treat each other with respect and kindness. Show compassion and respect confidentiality.

One person speaks at a time
Each person should be allowed to speak free from interruptions and side conversations.

Share the air time
Everyone who wishes to share has an opportunity to do so. No one person should monopolize the group time.

"Headline" your comments
Say the most important part of your comment first. Try to keep your contribution brief and to the point.

The group leader may interrupt you
This is to keep the meeting on track.

Women's Depression Support Group
Women often have a very different experience with depression than do men. More women report that they are depressed and often they are more forthcoming about the emotions and issues they experience. Come join this women's only group. Share with other women. Learn from other women. Support yourself and others as you move toward recovery.
