Welcome to The Philly Social Anxiety Suport Group or PhillySAS. Our goal is to assist individuals who struggle with socializing and interfacing with new people by creating friendly, open, and supportive environments where they can meet others like themselves and gain tools on how to better assist themselves in situations away from our group
Social anxiety is very difficult to overcome, especially when it seems that the only way to work on it is to put yourself into extremely energetic and extroverted situations like clubs/bars/parties where your surrounded largely by seemingly career partiers, networkers, minglers, and the like. To be fair, for the truly determined, this process of "throwing one's self to the wolves" works extremely well in a very short period, but it is not advised for many. We seek to create safe, supportive, and controlled environments that will allow our members to gradually proceed past their anxiety while expanding their social network with like minded individuals.
