Choose From Any or All of the Following FREE Services:
Online Social / Community Center
Our private 24 x 7 Discord channel - a friendly, private online social space / community center created by our nomad members to share with CT area residents. People who "get" you will have text discussions, post pictures, play games, teach and learn each other's hobbies and wellness techniques, have scheduled or impromptu phone and/or video get-togethers, and interact without constant exposure to the news or the toxicity of social media like Facebook and Twitter. Requires a smart phone, computer, or tablet. Fill out our "Tell Us Your Preferences" form below to be invited to this service. If you've already registered in the past, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the "Join Discord" in the subject line.
Formal Support Groups (CT Area Residents)
Get a free daily mood boost! Hear friendly voices every weekday and add your voice to them to help others. This is not a deep-sharing support group and certainly not therapy or a pity party. It's run entirely by a team of peers - people who "get" you because they share your challenges. Mon-Fri, 10:15 a.m. eastern time. Use any phone including landline or flip phone. For CT area residents and our nomad members. No registration required. Click for description and dial-in instructions.
