What we’re about

What we're about

Austin H Friends is a very active social and support group for those 18 or older who have been diagnosed with Herpes HSV1 and HSV2 with over 1000 members in and around the Austin area.

Austin H Friends hosts AHF sponsored events each month with our members hosting ‘impromptu’ events throughout the month…there is never a dull moment with this group! Austin HELP Support Meeting, Sushi Night, Last Friday of the Month Happy Hours and  more. 

Our members’ privacy is important to us. Austin H Friends MeetUp group (as well as our other outreach platforms) is set to PRIVATE or SECRET meaning that only approved members can see the details of our events, the location and comments within each of those platforms. We have both a Facebook and MeetUp group.

***We do not ‘vet’ our membership by anything other than asking if you have a HSV diagnosis…online safety and privacy is always recommended. ***

For those members who would like to take extra steps for privacy, we recommend that you create an email account specific to only your H activities, remove your last name from your profile, set your MeetUp group settings to ‘hide your groups’ and if you are interested in our Facebook page (which we HIGHLY recommend), you may consider creating a separate H profile. To join the Austin H Friends Facebook group, please friend one of the following and send us a message letting us know you want to be added to AHF Facebook page:


Austin H Friends does have set membership rules that we expect all members to abide by, you will receive that information in a separate message.

You have taken the first step in finding us, now join and attend an event; you won't regret it.

See you soon!
