April 2010 - this web site has been replaced 

We now have our own domain name and a new web site: www.torontosocialanxiety.com .  Please use the new site from now.

Our purpose is to provide a safe, supportive environment for people with social phobia to get together, discuss our condition, and help each other as best as we can.

 

We realize that just showing up at a support group meeting can be extremely difficult. We understand. We have social phobia too. If you'd like to join us, there's no obligation to participate.

 

Imagine yourself at the meeting with a few people like yourself. A new person tentatively approaches for the first time. You can see they're nervous and trying hard to keep it under control, because they very much want to be able to do this. How would you respond to this situation? You'd be understanding, supportive, and not put any pressure on them because you know what it's like, right? Us too. We've been there - on both sides of that situation. And once we got past it, we made good friends and went home after the meeting feeling great. Because we knew we weren't alone. We met people like ourselves who were understanding, didn't judge us, and shared their experiences to help us cope better. We hope you'll join us.

Too shy to come to the group?
Do you feel too anxious to come out to the group meetings?  Would you like more information before your first meeting?  Not ready for social situations?  If this describes you, and you would like to meet on an individual basis with one of our facilitators, then contact Rama at socialphobiagroup@yahoo.com . We can answer any questions you have about the group and about taking the first steps in dealing with social anxiety.
