What we're about
Welcome to the Meetup group! This is a collaborative peer lead support group which seeks to come together to discuss topics related to social anxiety and shyness and to support each other. We live in an extroverted, outgoing society and oftentimes it can be hard to relate to others who do not share our conditions. This group provides a place where everyone can open up and share their feelings without fear of judgement.
In addition to the support group this Meetup also provides other events such as hiking, movies, dining out and more, which is a great opportunity to make new friends who are just as anxious as we are.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!
We also have a Slack group for discussion between events: https://goo.gl/i375Ay
