Support Group

When people leave religion, many feel that they have nothing to turn to when tragedy strikes. They may feel alone and unsupported.

We intend to foster an atmosphere of love and support for one another in our quest to build a more caring community.

The one thing religion does get right is that there is always someone available to help through problems and hard times. It is apparent that this is something that ALL humans need.

Thus far, the atheist community as a whole has been very good at fostering intellectual conversation and getting the community to socialize. What we need more of is a tighter, closer connection among atheists to truly make this a community.

The support group is a place for atheists to come and talk about whatever life issues they may be facing. It could be about their struggles in leaving religion, it could be a place for support during a time of depression, or even just to talk about daily life stressed that are overwhelming. And we are absolutely here for our fellow atheists that are experiencing grief over a loved one who has died. There is not nearly enough help for non-believers during times of mourning and loss, and this is something that desperately needs to change.

Even if you are not experiencing any difficult times right now, please feel free to join us anyway to support other members of the community that need the extra care.

 

Teakwood restaurant is located in Wildomar, about 10 minutes South of Lake Elsinore. It is on Clinton Keith Road, just off the 15 freeway.

    So sorry I won't be able to make it after all. My hubby and I carpool and the timing doesn't always work out. Hope you guys have a great meetup!

    I think this is a great idea, but it's a far piece from Redlands!

      I'd really like to participate in a support group in Riverside as Temecula is just too much of a drive for me. There's a real toll in losing friends & family that isn't satisfied by intellectual freedom from religion.

      I agreee with you guys. I live in Redlands/Mentone area and Temecula is quite far for me. I don't mind traveling that far, but I'd be severely limited by the amount of trip I could make each month. If we can have a meetup in Riverside, San Bernardino, or even Redlands because of all the beautiful parks here and the beautiful downtown, then that'd be nice.

    I would love to be a part of this group, although Temecula is a bit far from Redlands. If my schedule allows, I'll see if I can make it.

    Maybe if it was closer to the HD for sure. And support literally means 2 persons teams getting up at 3:00 am and driving to that persons home to talk de-escalate the circumstance in that persons mind. Stabilize them face to face or over the phone.

    A central location for many is San Bernardino, and the group once used the main library meeting room there.

    We need this in the high desert.
