Inviting people to join dissociative talk, my email support group for those who live with a dissociative disorder

I know I’ve probably mentioned it before, but I run an email support group for people living with dissociation, or a dissociative disorder. Most of our members have some form of dissociation, or full blown did. The group is an email support list, where we exchange email back and forth, on all aspects of living with did, or dissociation. We also just discuss our day to day lives, our ups and downs, while supporting one another in a safe space. I used to run the group on yahoogroups, but about six months ago I changed providers to groups.io instead. We currently have about 35 members, and the list can be busy some days and not too busy on other days. I also allow supporters, people who do not have a dissociative disorder but who support those of us who do on the list. We currently have about 3 or 4 supporters on the list who are really lovely people. As I said you can talk about absolutely anything on the list, trigger warnings are just used if a subject is triggery to keep everyone safe. Sometimes things like quotes, articles, or other links are posted as well just for some variety.

If anyones interested in joining, either as a supporter or as someone living with dissociation or a dissociative disorder, the subscription info is below.

All you have to do is send an email to that address, then reply to the confirmation email you get back and I will approve you right away.

I created a Supportive list for those dealing with mental illness

Hi everyone
Tonight I decided I’d make a new email support group. It is aimed at those who struggle with mental illness. I called it living with mental illness. Its a private list, all members have to be either invited or approved, and only members are able to see the posts made to the list. I invited those of you who I had email addresses for. If anyone else wants to join either comment here and let me know what your email address is, or if you already have my email address you can email me for an invite. Best way to reach me though is comment on here about getting an invite.
With the list I hope that we’ll all be able to support one another through tough times, good times, low times and high times too.
I hope we can give one another advice, suggestions, what works, doesnt work for us, etc.
Looking forward to become a close knit bunch of friends!
