I know I’ve talked about support groups before but I’ve recently come across a new group as I was searching for a PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) group. The group is called Meetup and to explain, I’ll copy a few words from their website: “Meetup’s about using the Internet to get off the Internet. With Meetup, you’ll find and join Meetup Groups about any topic you can imagine. But unlike regular online social networks, you’ll actually meet with members of those groups in the real world. Meetup’s mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. We believe people can change their personal world and even the whole world by organizing themselves into groups that share a common interest or goal. Whatever that interest or goal may be, Meetup knows that when people meet face to face in the real world great things happen!” These groups are not just support groups; they are skiing groups, knitting groups, groups of people with common interests. For more information go to www.meetup.com or email support@meetup.com
