I live in a rural area and there are no support groups here. I asked who belongs to one because I have some really important questions to ask. #1 Is the support group lead by a medical professional? #2 Does a support group need to be sanctioned by anyone such as ADA, local Health Department etc.? #3 If you belong to a group will you please find out what it took to get it started?
I am not an organizer but was thinking if possible those of us that need support groups might be able to start our own. This would take a lot of time, printer ink and paper. Every state, county and city has different laws concerning this type of activity. If we can start a group it will take time to get it going. Word of mouth, advertising etc.
I would like honest opinions here.
