Join our online support group
If you're looking for people to talk with, advice, and support, join our online support group in the SAFE Support and Discussion Forum.
The main forum is for abuse of all sorts (men and women, straight and gay, elderly abuse, sibling abuse, etc..), and for people that have abused as well (as long as they are trying to change their behavior). It is a safe place to talk about your experiences and seek support. One of the forum's advantages is that because there is a lot of different types of people on the list, you're often able to get perspectives you wouldn't get if everybody in the group was exactly like you.
To participate in this group, see the forums page, and specifically, the Support and Discussion Forum. You can subscribe to receive email alerts by clicking on the link at the top of the Support and Discussion Forum.
