DDH ONLINE PEER SUPPORT COMMUNITIES

In an effort to broaden our reach to disaster survivors and emergency responders, the Disaster Distress Helpline has developed online peer support communities through Facebook Groups for those who have experienced a natural or human-caused disaster. These online communities offer opportunities for survivors and responders to connect with others who have experienced similar events, share accurate information and trusted resources, and help one another continue to heal from the effects of a traumatic event.

What Does it Offer?

The purpose of DDH Online Peer Support Communities is to create enhanced opportunities for survivors and responders of disaster to come together for mutual aid and emotional support.

DDH Online Peer Support Communities Also Include:

Trained Peer Supporters

DDH Online Peer Support includes trained peer supporters who assist with group moderation and vetting resources. In addition to community forums, our goal is also to create purposeful discussions lead by peer supporters with specific themes and relevant topics. While each survivor and responder’s experiences are unique, being with peers who have had a similar experience can promote connection, offer new ways of coping, and build a foundation of trust.

Peer support does not take the place of therapy or counseling. The opportunity to provide mutual aid and support to others who have faced similar challenges, when and where they need it, offers hope that healing and recovery is possible after a disaster.

Immediate Crisis Support

All DDH Online Peer Support Communities are monitored 24/7 by a designated DDH crisis center, where crisis counselors are available to talk to members who may be in emotional distress and need crisis support. Members can talk to a counselor at any time of the day or night via Crisis Support Over Messenger (CSOM).

Available Communities

Survivors and Responders of the COVID-19 Pandemic 

DDH Online Peer Support Communities offer peer support for anyone who identifies as a survivor or responder of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both survivors and responders can come together for mutual aid, to share trusted resources, and to help one another continue to heal from the effects of a national pandemic. Survivors and responders may include but are not limited to, any healthcare workers, emergency responders, parents/caregivers, educators, individuals who have lost loved ones, people who are dealing with “Long-haul COVID”, those impacted by job loss or economic hardship during the pandemic, and anyone else who has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. DDH-trained Peer Supporters are also available to listen and offer validation and encouragement. Additionally, they provide structured moderation within the community to engage members in meaningful discussions on relevant topics and offer timely and trusted resources. To join our Facebook group dedicated to Survivors and Responders of the COVID-19 Pandemic, click here.

Survivors of Mass Violence

DDH Online Peer Support Communities offer peer support for survivors of mass violence in the United States including mass shootings, terrorist attacks, or other large-scale community violence. Survivors and loved ones who have experienced mass violence can connect with one another and provide emotional support in the aftermath of a mass violence incident, including how to cope with activating events and memorials, self-care strategies, and challenges with daily living. DDH-trained Peer Supporters are available to listen to members, and offer validation and encouragement. They also provide structured moderation to engage members in meaningful discussions on relevant topics and provide timely and trusted resources. If you are a survivor or the loved one of a survivor of mass violence and need support, please join our Facebook group by requesting to be a member here.

What is Autism?

What you should know

Autism is a severe developmental disorder that affects the way a child sees and interacts with the rest of the world. It limits their ability to interact with others socially, in fact many autism suffers avoid human contact.

Autism is part of a larger group of disorders called pervasive developmental disorders (PDD). More information about autism: Click on each of these links

 

Autism-Definition

Autism is a developmental disability that comes from a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain. It is characterized by the abnormal development of communication skills, social skills, and reasoning. Males are affected four times as often as females. Children may appear normal until around the age of 30 months.

 

Click each of these following titles learn more….

Autism Symptoms

Autism Symptoms vary widely in severity, include impairment in social interaction, fixation on inanimate objects, inability to communicate normally, and resistance to changes in daily routine. Characteristic traits include lack of eye contact, repetition of words or phrases, unmotivated tantrums, inability to express needs verbally, and insensitivity to pain.

Behaviors may change over time. Autistic children often have other disorders of brain function; about two thirds are mentally retarded; over one quarter develop seizures.

What Autism is Not

Autism can be confused with several other disorders which may have similar behaviors. Here is a list of autism like disorders that you should look at.

What Causes Autism

It remains unclear, but a psychological one has been ruled out. Neurological studies seem to indicate a primary brain dysfunction, and a genetic component is suggested by a pattern of autism in some families. It is largely believed that autism is a genetic disorder that involves several genes related to gene function. However it is unclear to researchers what causes these genes to turn on. Learn more about other causes of autism.

Autism Research

There are many exciting developments in autism research going on at the top universities. They are focusing on inherited autism and autism gene research.

Other Autism Spectrum Disorders

Asperger’s Syndrome – A child with asperger’s disorder has the same common problems as children with autism however they don’t have language development problems of a autistic child.

Pervasive Developmental Disorder and not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) – This child has autism but doesn’t meet the criteria for high functioning autism.

High-Functioning Autism – This child has autism but has normal learning and cognitive and learning skills. Language development is difficult initially but they become proficient eventually.

About Autism

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that is estimated to affect about 1 in 36 children and approximately 2.21% of adults. Autism affects the way a person experiences the world and can result in significant challenges in social communication and interaction, as well as repetitive behaviors and unusual or intense interests.

People on the autism spectrum often have a strong preference for routines and predictability, and some are challenged in adapting to change. Many people on the autism spectrum experience sensory differences, including high or low sensitivity to sounds, light, textures, tastes, and physical touch. Some have accompanying language and/or intellectual disabilities, and some may be intellectually gifted or possess other unique abilities, talents, or strengths.

ASD can be diagnosed at any age, but differences generally appear in the first two years of life. ASD is known as a “spectrum” condition because it encompasses a wide variation in the type, combination, and severity of disabilities, as a well as a range of unique abilities and strengths, many of which can change over the course of a person’s lifespan. The type and intensity of supports and services that a child or adult on the autism spectrum may require, ranging from minimal to intensive, will vary depending on their unique needs.

With appropriate supports and an environment that promotes inclusion, acceptance, and empowerment, people on the autism spectrum can fully participate in community life and achieve their full potential.

This page includes resources that provide general information about autism.

Los miembros de nuestro equipo de Warmline son personas que han experimentado desafíos en la vida, incluidos estados de ánimo, voces, visiones, traumas y adicciones.

Línea de ayuda de Oregón 1-800-698-2392

 

El apoyo intencional de pares (IPS, por sus siglas en inglés) proporciona un marco poderoso para crear relaciones en las que ambas personas aprenden y crecen juntas. IPS se utiliza en todo el mundo en entornos comunitarios, de apoyo entre pares y de servicios humanos, y es una herramienta para el desarrollo comunitario que honra las fortalezas y el valor innato de cada persona. ¿Por qué IPS? Los compañeros se reúnen en torno a experiencias compartidas y, a menudo, el deseo de cambiar vidas. Pero sin un nuevo marco sobre el cual construir, las personas con frecuencia recrean la “ayuda” en función de lo que se les hizo. IPS ofrece una base para hacer algo diferente. Nos enfocamos en construir relaciones que sean mutuas, exploratorias y conscientes del poder. No intentaremos “arreglarlo”, pero nos encantaría conectarnos con usted para escuchar, compartir y aprender con usted a medida que ambos avanzamos en nuestros viajes de vida. Nuestro apoyo de pares confidencial y sin prejuicios comienza con la premisa de que las personas han aprendido a dar sentido a sus experiencias y relaciones a partir de todo lo que han aprendido en sus vidas. Sabemos que esto ha llevado a muchas personas a sentirse indignas, desconfiadas e inherentemente defectuosas. Sin entender cómo nosotros, como individuos, hemos llegado a saber lo que sabemos sobre estar en una relación y el mundo que nos rodea, es probable que tengamos problemas, no solo con angustia emocional, sino también con una lucha continua cuando hay tensión en la relación. o en la propia comunidad.


Creemos que la crisis es una oportunidad para aprender. En una conversación mutua y respetuosa, los compañeros descubren juntos cómo han desarrollado sus creencias sobre sí mismos y el mundo en el que viven. Juntas, ayuda y crisis se redefinen y adquieren un nuevo significado. Cada persona tiene la oportunidad de desafiarse a sí misma para aprender cómo podría cambiar su historia traumática de victimización y crisis por una de bienestar mental.


No damos consejos ni intentamos “conseguir” que nadie haga nada. Estamos allí para escuchar y validar los sentimientos y experiencias de la persona que llama. Juntos tenemos una conversación en la que ambos nos volvemos más conscientes mientras aprendemos y crecemos juntos. Compartimos experiencias y conocimientos para descubrir formas en las que aprendemos nuevas formas de manejar nuestros sentimientos y descubrimos formas más sanas de relacionarnos con los demás. Una vez que un individuo tuvo que “hacer frente” a un problema, puede aprender a desafiar sus creencias con respecto a ese problema, tener una experiencia diferente de la situación y ya no tener que “hacer frente” porque el problema ya no existe. El uso de esta Oregon Warmline puede ayudar a las personas a disminuir la necesidad de visitas frecuentes al médico, tratamiento en la sala de emergencias, participación con la policía y la necesidad de cuidados más intensivos.

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline! Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day. No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call!  Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has led many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ anyone to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

ANARG - Alcoholics And Addicts Recovery Group - Daily @ Online Register for Details

ALCOHOLICS & ADDICTS RECOVERY GROUP

To join this group, use the Join Group button on the facebook page:
Although we are not an official AA/NA group, this site is for 12 step discussion but should not be used instead of face to face meetings. This site is here to help others in recovery from a very harsh disease. Consequently, we welcome the opportunity to share AA/NA experience with those who would like to get clean and sober. Your anonymity is not guaranteed on this site. The fact that you are a member of the group might be seen by others. Your posts in this group are visible only to other members of the group.
GROUP GUIDELINES
All Facebook rules regarding conduct and speech are in effect in this group. You may be removed or banned from this group for the following reasons:
* The subject of CbD oil, suboxone or marijuana maintenance (These subjects have a history of heated emotional debate and are considered and outside issue)
* If you are looking for theological debates.
* If you are seeking medical advice about your prescriptions. * WE ARE NOT DOCTORS*
* If you engage in racist, disruptive, or rude speech or behavior.
* If you block any of the group’s administrators.
* If you post pictures, video, memes, hashtags, or stickers.
* If you post links as an opening post, or post links in the comments that have nothing to do with the topic being discussed in an ongoing thread.
* If you post advertisements of any sort.
* If you are trolling, seeking private messages, asking for or putting your phone number on the group walls.
* If you are not here to offer or receive help with your drug addiction or alcoholism, if you are here to promote your own agenda.
When you troll for fish, you throw a line and wait for a bite. When you’re trolling for mayhem in a discussion group, you (post) or (comment) objectionable, confrontational, or intentionally controversial statements in an attempt to generate arguments. It’s petulant, sophomoric, and harmful, and it will not be tolerated.
If you feel the need to complain about anything, please send an instant message to any of the admins.
Thank you!

All Pathways Recovery Support Group

Our mission is to empower women to reach their full recovery and parenting potential through peer-to-peer support and mentorship.
Our groups offer support, resources, and encouragement to women balancing recovery and parental responsibilities; while providing opportunities to build their recovery tribe.
These support groups are VERY different than some may be accustomed to. They are not centered around any particular recovery pathway, and all are welcome. We encourage and celebrate any and all efforts to improve quality of life.
Our groups and organization were created primarily for those who might avoid (for whatever personal reason) recovery programs that preach abstinence only. This group is not about exclusion. It is about joining together on the road to freedom, and respecting each other’s right to paint that picture differently.
We understand that recovery is not a box, and we do not try to cram our own personal beliefs or opinions down anyone’s windpipe. We listen. We share our personal experience. We show support.
These groups will not be received well by all. Many will struggle to embrace the lack of structure regarding what recovery is and isn’t — and that is okay. Those who wish to grow and work through those struggles will be met with plenty of opportunity and support in doing just that. We understand how difficult it can be to accept that recovery is not a black and white, simple solution. We know how much self reflection it takes to be truly open to the idea that our particular brand of recovery is not necessarily the “right” one — that there is no right way to find and maintain personal recovery.
Our groups will challenge you to step outside whatever box you’ve been wrapped, and if you decide they are not the appropriate place for you in your process right now, we will hold the door open for you in case you ever change your mind. You will not be judged.
There will be threads about active use, medication assistance, and moderation in this group, and some may feel triggered. You will always be encouraged to speak up these things in a way that respects us all. It is 100% possible to voice discomfort in a way that invites us all into conversation about boundaries and the importance of acknowledging and protecting our own edges.
If ever you wish to reach out to admin to discuss any of this, we really hope you will.
We are SO happy you found us, and I hope – after reading and processing all of this – you’ll join us and rejoice in the rare opportunities this group has to offer you.

Group rules from the admins

Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or identity will not be tolerated.
We encourage every member to share about struggles; we just ask that you please leave out details that could be triggering to another member.
If you’re posting anything you feel might be triggering to members, please write *TRIGGER WARNING* at the top of your post and then hit . & return at least 10 times before beginning.
Even if you are a doctor, please refrain from giving ANY medical or medication advice. When in doubt, ask YOUR primary care physician.
Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.
Understand that while your way works for you, it may not work for everyone. There is no right or wrong way.
We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness and mutual respect are required. No name calling.
It is also not okay to solicit group members by private messages. If you have a new group or page you think some of our members might benefit from, please reach out to admin and ASK before posting it.
It is not just the responsibility of admins to keep enforcing guidelines and ensure safety, it is also yours. Please help keep our group safe by flagging any and all posts you find concerning.
Do not take screenshots in this group and do not share screenshots from anywhere else in this group.

ARCH does not provide respite care, but we may be able to help you find it in your local community through your State Respite Coalition or Lifespan Respite Program or through resources listed below, including State Provider Registries or the Eldercare Locator.

If you cannot find respite through the resources listed above, we also maintain the National Respite Locator Service (NRLS), which helps parents, family caregivers, and professionals find respite services in their state and local area to match their specific needs. The NRLS lists primarily home care agencies, assisted living, or state or community-based agencies that provide respite care. If you find that a listing is out of date or no longer providing respite care, please contact ARCH.

If you have a respite program or service you would like to list on the NRLS, please visit the respite provider portal.

State Respite Coalition or Lifespan Respite Program

If your state has a State Respite Coalition or Lifespan Respite Care Program, be sure to contact them first for information about respite providers or ways to pay for respite.

DDA Chat room and resource group

Greetings,
This new chat/resource group was created to help support those and their families who suffer from mental health and, or, addiction struggles during the coronavirus situation.
Please know that we are all in this together, so please invite those who might be able to help or benefit.  The five rules of respect will govern this site, so love, encouragement, and valid resources are the primary mission of this group. We look forward to the support of the community and sharing support and resources for those who need it.
IMPORTANT: Anyone who chooses to promote panic, fear, racism, or misinformation will be asked to stop and or be blocked.
Love, peace, and blessings (LPB)

DDA’s Five Rules of Respect
1. First, and most importantly, who you see here and what is said here, let it stay here! (Here! Here!) Confidentiality and anonymity are the spiritual foundations that keep our recovery possible.
2. Questions and answers are welcome and positive feedback is given, when asked for.
3. Keep it real.
4. Try not to disrupt the group.
5. It is OK to pass, if you do not wish to share.

Facebook Group – 24/7
Group By Simon Greygoose:
Just a polite reminder about my Small Friends Recovery Closed Group, We have some amazing, kind and wonderful members.
You’re all welcome to join, if you feel like you are struggling with anything life throws at you, addictions, illness, stress, anxiety,
anything at all, I started this group, when I first went into recovery, and it has been amazing the response and help I received from the members who joined I’m so grateful to all ❤️
I really want to make this group, so different from other ones, to be unique and have a family feeling of friends actually caring for others with compassion and love for each other.
It’s a safe place to be without judgement from others, and extremely confidential. Also, if you feel you can offer advice or just be a caring person who can listen and offer a few words of encouragement to others, We also need your help. The kindest thing another human can do is to offer a helping hand to someone struggling, helping others is priceless.
Unity is strength 💪
Thank you ❤️

What is Discord?

Our peer support community is built on Discord.

Discord is an app that lets people build communities around text based chat, as well as connect with one another through voice and video group calls.

Discord is 100% free to use and the app is available for mobile (iOS and Android), desktop (PC and Mac), or you can even connect without any app just by accessing it through a web browser like Chrome.

Code of Conduct

Welcome to the Code of Conduct. Let’s get right to it!

  1. We use supportive, welcoming language.

    • We strive to use welcoming/caring language that is supportive, encouraging, respecting, accepting, understanding and/or validating. We do our best to avoid using critical, shaming, controlling, or patronizing language.

    • We will do our best to monitor and edit our own language. If a mod reaches out and asks us to edit it, we edit it.

  2. We respect differing perspectives of others, and make space for each other within the community.

    • We will make space for others to share their personal experiences. We do not attack, demean, dismiss, harass, or threaten each other. This includes: bullying, bigotry, hate speech, physical threats, personal attacks, doxing. We also will not tell anyone that their lived experience is wrong, or shame others for their choice in treatment.

    • We do not attack, demean, dismiss, harass, or threaten each other based on sex, gender, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, race, ethnicity, culture, neurodiversity, mental health, physical health, religion, or political alignment.

    • If something someone says appears to be breaking a community rule, acting with malice, or is otherwise problematic, we will not attack or criticize them, but instead will alert the Mod Team, who can assess and handle the situation. Before doing this, it can also be helpful to assume good intent, and ask for clarification in a respectful and non-judgemental way. The mods are available to lend a hand as well.

    • We will strive to create an inclusive environment for everyone to feel safe participating in.

  3. We call people what they ask to be called.

    • We call people by their stated names/pronouns/identities. If a dead name or incorrect pronoun is used (yours or someone else’s), we will respectfully ask the person to update their message to properly reflect the other’s name/pronouns/identities. If it is brought to your attention that you have made a mistake with someone else’s name/pronouns/identities, that’s okay, mistakes happen, but please kindly take the note and edit the message as soon as possible.

    • We do not correct others on their own usage of their names/pronouns/identities. For example if someone prefers to be called “schizophrenic” or “person living with schizophrenia”, that is up to each individual person. We respect each individual’s choice to determine how they would like to be referred to.

    • If we have any concerns about continued use of incorrect names/pronouns/identities, or feel that misuse is being done maliciously, we will let a mod know.

  4. We connect with each other from a trauma informed perspective.

    • We understand that everyone is coming to this community with different experiences and potential triggers. We will do our best to be mindful of this by using the “spoilers” function for any text that will likely be triggering or sensitive for others (write || on either side of the text to be hidden, or highlight the text to be hidden, right click and then click the eye symbol on the far right). Particularly triggering topics may be around suicide and addiction (no glorification allowed of either), as well as members difficult experiences with the mental health care system.

    • If you are feeling triggered, please step away from the conversation. If there is a channel or part of the server that is too triggering for you, please consider muting it or asking a moderator for help with finding accommodation.

  5. We provide our own experiences rather than provide direct advice.

    • When someone asks about medical treatments and therapies, we stick to speaking about our own experiences (keeping in mind that experiences may differ greatly between individual people). If we do provide more than our own experience, we share resources, strategies, and ideas without giving direct advice. If we do accidentally give direct advice (medical or generalized) and we’re asked to remove it, we remove it.

    • It is important to remember that discussion about treatments and therapies on this server does not replace talking with your doctor. Please discuss any issues or concerns with your doctor as well before making any changes to your or your loved one’s care.

  6. We let the Mods do the moderating. We respect moderator decisions and their time.

    • If you notice someone isn’t following a rule, please refrain from correcting community members, and instead, please briefly share your concerns with a moderator.

    • Refrain from arguing with the moderators and/or engaging the moderators in lengthy discussions.

    • If you have a concern or disagree with something the moderators have done, please respectfully reach out to Rob by DM. We are happy to discuss a situation and listen to concerns. (We may not always be able to go into detail, but will do our best to provide an adequate answer for our decision.)

NJARISG – No Judgement Addiction & Recovery Information and Support Group

Facebook Group 24/7

The intentions and basis of this group are/is to be a safe, supportive, informative, judgment free (and FUN!) place to talk about addiction and recovery, and the multiple forms of treatment that are available. And to support, encourage, and educate one another. If you’re a person in treatment/recovery, are supporting someone else who is in active addiction or going through the treatment/recovery process, or you just want to learn more about addiction, recovery, and/or the various treatment options, then you’ve come to the right place! We’re here for you! This group was created, and is managed by a Certified Recovery Coach, who is also in recovery. I’ve tried and traveled various paths to get where I am today in my recovery, including: total abstinence, NA/AA, 12 step programs, Medication assisted treatment, (suboxone AND Methadone), Smart recovery, individual and group therapy, Celebrate Recovery/faith based programs, etc. The philosophy of this group is that no ONE way is “the right way,” when it comes to treatment, and recovery from addiction. And that what works for one person, doesn’t necessarily work for the whole.

VA now allows veterans in suicidal crisis to go to any VA or non-VA healthcare facility for free emergency healthcare

Veterans in acute suicidal crisis can now go to any VA or non-VA healthcare facility for emergency health care at no cost — including inpatient or crisis residential care for up to 30 days and outpatient care for up to 90 days.

Veterans do not need to be enrolled in VA health care to use this benefit. This expansion will increase access to acute suicide care for up to 9 million veterans who are not currently enrolled in the VA system.

The final policy, which took effect on Jan. 17, allows the VA to:

  • Provide, pay for, or reimburse for treatment of eligible individuals’ emergency suicide care, transportation costs, and follow-up care at a VA or non-VA facility for up to 30 days of inpatient care and 90 days of outpatient care.
  • Make appropriate referrals for care following the period of emergency suicide care.
  • Determine eligibility for other VA services and benefits.
  • Refer eligible individuals for appropriate VA programs and benefits following the period of emergency suicide care.

Eligible individuals, regardless of VA enrollment status, are:

  • Veterans who were discharged or released from active duty after more than 24 months of active service under conditions other than dishonorable.
  • Former members of the armed forces, including reserve service members, who served more than 100 days under a combat exclusion or in support of a contingency operation either directly or by operating an unmanned aerial vehicle from another location who were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.
  • Former members of the armed forces who were the victim of a physical assault of a sexual nature, a battery of a sexual nature, or sexual harassment while serving in the armed forces.

If you or someone you know is struggling: Don’t wait. Reach out. Visit www.va.gov/REACH for resources and information, or call 988 (then press 1) to quickly connect with caring, qualified crisis support 24/7.

Peer Support Space Online Group is a safe space for anyone to share anything in a NONJUDGMENTAL and SUPPORTIVE environment. We believe that you never know what anyone is going through, that it is okay to not be okay, and that when we share our stories we become empowered and remind others that they are not alone.
All topics are welcome here (ex: mental illness, trauma, sexual abuse, addiction, suicidality etc.). Here we feel safe to express ourselves without fear of being judged. Here we listen to and support one another.
You are loved. You matter. You are not alone.
Rules:*
1. We respect and validate all sexual orientations, genders, ages, and disabilities as well as those of diverse neurological, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds.
2. We are welcoming and introduce ourselves to new members.
3. Sexual harassment or harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. If asked to stop, stop. If you feel you are being harassed, in any way, by any member please message an admin.
4. While sharing what has helped YOU is encouraged, we believe that there are many routes to recovery and individuals should be the “drivers” of their recovery journey including treatment choices.
5. You are allowed to share something and ask to not be given advice.
*This is a growing group, rules are subject to change.*
***Please note, that although we honor confidentiality this space this is the internet and as such we cannot guarantee privacy – please share using your own discretion.***
