What we’re about
Social anxiety disorder makes us feel helpless and hopeless. We isolate ourselves due to our fears of criticism and rejection. The LGBT+ community is especially susceptible to emotional dysfunction. This group was established to challenge our negative and self-destructive perspectives. You are not alone! We provide a safe and empathetic space offering support, friendship, awareness, and treatment options.
We hold monthly online calls focusing on issues that impact our daily lives. You will meet colleagues with the same concerns and experiences. Your organizers know social anxiety first-hand and recognize what you are going through. Our primary objective is to provide a secure and confidential environment where you can share your stories and issues and get answers from persons who understand and care.
We also offer quarterly workshops.
(The LGBTQ+ Social Anxiety Group is supported, pro bono, by ReChanneling.org.)

Persons experiencing social anxiety have significantly lower implicit and explicit self-esteem relative to healthy controls.
Regenerate means to renew or restore something that has been damaged or lost. Because of the disruption in our optimal development, many of the qualities that construct our self-esteem become latent or dormant – underdeveloped or suspended.
They are damaged but not lost. Disruption interrupts productivity; it does not destroy it.
Like the unexercised muscle in our arm or leg, our self-esteem can be regenerated by utilizing specific tools and techniques developed for that purpose.
We will discuss how our condition negatively impacts our self-esteem and methods to regenerate it.
