We Need YOU!

Those of us who are veterans of the road know how healing travel can be — and, sometimes, how lonely and frightening it can be.  The nomad chapter provides a way for people to get together and hang out with others who share similar challenges.  Our meetings and events aren’t pity parties or therapy.  They are like hanging out around a campfire with other people who “get it.”   The nomad chapter provides a way for people who are travelling with anxiety, depression,  etc., to provide social support to each other.  It is also open to those planning to become nomads.  Any human regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, religion, etc., is welcome. We don’t care what drugs you do or don’t take or whether you identify with any medical diagnostic labels. If you deal with mental challenges, we’ll accept you as one of us.

In order to make this work, we need YOU.  We need you if you’re an old hand; we need you if you’re new; we need you if you’ve been doing great for years; we need you if you’re struggling. We need people who are going to give hope to others by their example.  We need people who can give others a sense of purpose by needing their support.  We need the newbies to remind the veterans of how far they’ve come and the veterans to show the newbies how they got so far. Register below and/or join our RVillage group and start participating.  Help us help each other!
