“The Nest” DID Support Group
This is a safe and nurturing group in which to learn how to live and function with Dissociative Identity Disorder while going through the healing journey. Participants learn to develop life skills, coping skills, grounding tools, boundaries, and to connect with other survivors while receiving continued support and encouragement. This group is kept to a maximum of ten women, and meets once a week for a twelve-week period. Therapist approval is needed. There is no cost. Donors provide these groups through their generous giving. You will receive a workbook, and other materials for many tools to help you along your healing journey. Contact us here.
Testimonial: The Nest Support Group has been so helpful for me to learn some new tools for managing DID, to be encouraged by the healing progress of others who are further along in their journeys than I am (healing is possible!), and to have other women who can relate to the highs and lows of my own journey.
