Event Series Event Series: Peer Support Meetup

Peer Support Meetup

July 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm



Join us for a facilitated peer support group. Each participant will have an opportunity to talk about what is going on in their life, if they wish to share. No one is obligated to participate verbally. We sometimes have a lot of participants and the time you have to share will depend on the number of participants.

After everyone has had a turn to share, if time allows, we will open it up for discussion. If you have a follow up question or an experience to share from your own life that might help one of our participants, you will have an opportunity to raise your hand and share.

If you struggle to remember what you want to say, it is a good idea to have pen and paper nearby to write down your thoughts. You may not get to say everything you want to say, but you can share your thoughts in our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/527207231874278.

Peer Support Group Agreements

  1. All autistic people are welcome and accepted in this group.
  2. What is discussed in the group will be kept in the group.
  3. People within this group have different worldviews and beliefs. I commit to being kind, respectful, and constructive in my comments.
  4. This group is not intended to help people find someone to date.
  5. We are not licensed therapists or counselors. Thus, we cannot offer professional advice to your situation. If your situation requires you to get psychological help, we will help by guiding you in the right direction with those who might be able to help.
  6. Remember to mute your microphone when you are not speaking. Computer mics are really sensitive and pick up a lot of background noise that can be distracting for others.
  7. Please stay on topic in the chat. We want to have the chat available for those who prefer that to verbal discussion, but it can be a distraction if the topic is different than what is being discussed verbally.
  8. No soliciting. Please refrain from trying to sell goods to our members or ask for money. We encourage all members to not give or borrow money to other members.
