We are trying to create a community of friends who understand each other...because we share a condition called Social Anxiety Disorder.
Our goal is to help each other come out of our shells (and homes!) by providing an open, safe, and welcoming environment.
Our hope is that you use this platform to attend and setup events you would usually not do so for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, and not having a group of friends who understand you.
Thank you for joining SociaLAnxiety Managers (SLAM). Please try to attend an event. Any event. It's the first and most important step. You can do it. We'll see you there.
Also we have a sister Facebook group, SASSY. It's invitation-only, so please message me (Carl Banks, the organizer), or talk to one of the people who've been in the group for awhile, to get an invitation.
The group is not liable for anything that takes place during the meetup. You are responsible for yourself and your own actions. We are not professionals, nor are we experts on the topics discussed. This meetup group is not a replacement for professional help. By attending this meetup, you agree to those terms.
