Start a Support Group

Support groups are an integral part of the recovery process. Meeting with others who understand what you are going through can help end the negative effects of isolation and shame so often caused by body-focused repetitive behaviors. Groups offer a forum to share and learn new behavior management strategies, raise awareness in the community, and make life-long friends. Although starting a group takes dedication and commitment, by doing so, you'll help yourself and others who haven't had anywhere else to turn.

Created by the Canadian BFRB Support Network and TLC

If you have a group or are starting one, let TLC know! We have a variety of ways to help you spread the word about your meetings.

TLC will actively support your efforts to start and lead a group. The links below provide some guidelines for starting a group in your area. TLC staff is also available for guidance and advice. Contact us for more information.

In Canada, the Canadian BFRB Support Network also offers advice, guidance and support for new group leaders in Canada.
