Social Phobia Group Closed.....
« on: August 23, 2014, 03:34:23 AM »
  The social phobia support group started by Earla Dunbar (look her up - she's famous in the mental health community).  I forget the exact name, but maybe their site even closed.

However, the other social phobia support group (lotsa members) is still around.  I forget the name, but they often use one of the MDAO rooms, but they aren't part of MDAO.  The head of that group is "Rama."

Earla is a nice lady, and a pioneer.  There are awards named after her.

Hi, Paul....Me too.  We're still keeping our once a month dinner outing, if anyone is interested.
Please contact me.........I don't run it, but I can turn it on to the person who does.

Paul, a person from the group emails everyone in the group to tell them.....I always forget which Saturday of the month it is.  The person who emails everyone chooses a restaurant, maybe with input from other members.  Lately not a lot of people show up - less than 10.

Want me to ask her if a "newbie" can be put on the email list?
