Greg Community Support Group #sundaysupportgroup #support...

Hi Fellow Greg Community Members
I wanted to sound people out as to whether there is sufficient interest to set up a Support Group. It would be a Peer support group and doesn’t claim to be a professional therapy support group.
It doesn’t seek to be a substitute for a professional therapist which I would always recommend (or a crisis line )
Instead, it would just be a group of Greg community members who come together to share what’s going on for them in a safe space.
I have in mind a DM chat or even a Zoom video meeting/Facetime where we can share and support each other.
I was thinking Sunday might be best and some of my Amigos here at Greg like that it could be on a Sunday. The chat could be 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number willing to join.
Open to any suggestions including suggestions for a good name with the support group #supportgroup or #supportgroupsunday or #sundaysupportgroup ?)

I am prepared to β€œchair” the initial meeting and just provide some guidance to ensure a safe space for all members o be able to support each other.
So share your thoughts below. This will be a natural extension to #plantboosttuesday which will be coming up with inspirational quotes affirmations, etc. #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PlantTherapy #GregGang #GreggersSupportingGreggers #Greggers #theamigos #seymour #plantmememonday #plantboosttuesday #mentalhealthmatters #communityspotlight #plantmafia #petsandplants #griefrecovery #depressionsucks #adhdplantlovers #anxietysociety #mentalhealthmonday #therapist

This is a great idea #theamigos
This is a really good idea! This community is really just a wonderful place :)
Man Awesome idea you guys 😍
love this
Here are some wonderful, inspirational plant/nature quotes. I was going to list my favorite ones, but that quickly became pointless because there are many great ones. I hope it helps anyone who is feeling down today to gain their smile back and laugh with the earth 🌍.

Hey everyone , appreciate the interest! I have added a discord group at the following link and I plan a Zoom meeting for this Sunday if people are keen but I am also available at times just for a one on one where I can just listen to what’s going on for you if you like . I am going with Jess’ suggestion of #supportgrouosunday so join the group page for more #SupportGroup

@coffeeNcalathea wow Bianca, that’s so kind of you. Maybe we need to have coffee counseling and calathea
@coffeeNcalathea maybe these are more appropriate in that case
They are on Temu, I can send the Aussie link, maaaate
@Seymour I’m also interested… just let me know… ☺️
@LaSiguanaba Will do Rose Red, I see you have already joined over at Discord. May try a meeting this Sunday if I can organize it. Take care and enjoy your Friday!
@Seymour Count me in :)
@Seymour I’d be interested in seeing how it goes . I’m a bit dense till I see myself πŸ₯Ή
This sounds amazing. We've had a couple of people start different groups. We are probably all needing some encouragement and support. Personally my daily struggle with complex ptsd has been pretty difficult lately. I love the Greg community, truly kind, giving and non judgemental.
@Sassylimey Hi Sarah I am just not sure how to coordinate it as it needs to be offline from Greg so it isn’t public but I wa thinking maybe a Facebook forum group or just zoom?
Oh and not all the community conforms to your description but overwhelming yes they are !πŸ‘πŸ˜€
Any suggestions ?
Hey Seymour, there are so many options out there for group meets... So I did a search, seems good ideas/hints copied and pasted below:
Virtual collaboration: Suggest effective online meeting tools and strategies for remote group discussions.

To have a meeting with a group of people in the Internet, consider the following steps:

Use a meeting scheduling tool: Utilize a meeting scheduling tool that has a meeting poll feature. This allows you to set up a number of meeting times as options and ask people for the best time to meet as a group. Everyone can see the results of the poll, and you can finalize the time based on the maximum number of attendees.

Choose a video conferencing platform: Select a reliable video conferencing platform that suits your group’s needs. Popular options include Zoom, Google Meet, or Skype. Ensure that all participants have the necessary software or app installed and are familiar with its features.

Schedule a recurring meeting: Consider scheduling recurring meetings to maintain consistency and make it easier for participants to adjust their schedules accordingly.

Communicate effectively: Before the meeting, send out a clear agenda and any necessary materials to all participants. During the meeting, encourage active participation and use features like chat or polls to facilitate engagement.

Join online communities or forums: Look for online communities or forums related to your group’s interests. This can help you connect with potential participants and schedule meetings more easily.

Use social media: Leverage social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to promote your meeting and invite potential participants.

Meetup.com: Consider using Meetup.com, a platform that allows you to find and join groups of people with shared interests. This can be a great way to connect with others and schedule meetings.

Additional Tips

Be flexible: Be open to adjusting your schedule to accommodate different time zones or conflicting schedules.

Test your equipment: Ensure that your computer, internet connection, and audio/video equipment are functioning properly before the meeting.

Encourage participation: Foster an inclusive environment by encouraging all participants to share their thoughts and ideas.

Follow up: After the meeting, send a summary of the discussion and any action items to ensure everyone is on the same page.

By following these steps and tips, you can successfully have a meeting with a group of people in the Internet.
