Thanks for this article, Elizabeth. I was talking about this with someone at EA Global in Boston. Many years ago, I had joined a support group started by a friend of mine for people with a specific mental health problem. It was tremendously helpful to me, and basically cost nothing to anyone (apart from time) as far as I know. There was no mental health professional present, but in this case at least, I found that was a plus as everyone was discussing as an equal, sharing tips, etc. My friend acted as an informal moderator.
