There are absolutely no support groups within two hundred miles of where I am, and that's just sad. I'd really like to start one. I have a place and a time (conference room at my school, two hours once a month). I know how I'll advertise (I'm a teacher so I can advertise at my school, at the other schools in the district, and at the college here in town.) I'm also going to keep a running ad in the paper. I also want to call the local behavioral health centers and see if I can get some of the doctors to come and give presentations on certain topics, suggest strategies, etc. I'm also going to want to serve refreshments. I really want this to work-this current obsession is keeping my mind off of the depression/anxiety that is worse than it has been in months. Is there anything I'm forgetting? Anything I need to keep in mind? Do I need to advertise for a co-leader to help me out? This is as much for me as it is for other people who have nowhere to go and can't afford professional services (like me.)
