Hi,

I am also from the Chicago area. I have tried finding support groups in the past and had little success. I would be interested in knowing what your experience has been.

From Chicago area, kind of anyway, North West Indiana. I haven't had much luck finding a group either. I have toyed with the idea of starting a group, but not sure how to go about it. Any thoughts?

Hey des,

Keep an eye out for the next newsletter scheduled to be published here in late January. It will have an article from one of the first men to start an MS support group. His is in Los Angeles. It will be a step by step process for getting a support group off the ground.

In the meantime, keep in touch with the guys who are geographically closest to you and who use these boards. Good luck.

Taz

Hi- i don't know exactly how old this thread is, but i'm relocating to the Chicago area shortly, and would welcome any chance to connect with fellow survivors in the area; i see there's some T's listed in the "Find a Therapist" section here for Chicago, and will be looking into that, too. This relocation provides me with the opportunity to utilize recovery resources beyond participating here at MS, so i'm just trying to reach out and take the next steps, and also add my support to any survivors/groups in the Chicago area. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions, or info to share.

This is over a year old, so many things change in a year, but if you are still in Chicago and interested, there seem to be a few of us here, please reply

I am new to site but have been going to SAA meetings. http://www.saa-recovery.org/ for more information. I am in North Chicago and the SAA group I go to is close. I would like to get a MS group started or go to one here in NE Illinois. SAA is great and all, but I think that my SA stems from being a survivor of abuse. So, if there are any still interested in a meeting, please PM me. Thanks, Josh

Guys,

This is an old thread but please check out the "Find Support" tab on our home page. You'll find two different groups listed there in Chicago. Good luck and good healing smile
