Group Description

Refa'enu: Online Support Forum is focused solely on creating a safe online space for peer-to-peer support for those whose lives are impacted by mood disorders. It's a forum for offering and receiving advice and support.

Refa’enu: Online Support Forum is not group therapy. Group members may offer support but it does not take the place of professional therapeutic treatment. By joining this group, you expressly acknowledge the above and waive all claims, and release Refa'enu, Inc., and its organizers, staff, and members from any potential liability arising out of your interactions in or with this group.

In using Refa'enu, Inc.'s forum, you can choose to participate anonymously by creating an alias. In addition, your e-mail address is always hidden from group members except in messages you post via e-mail. If you prefer, you can also opt to keep your e-mail address hidden from group members and moderators when you post. Membership options are available once you log onto the group site.

Refa'enu, Inc. is in the process of creating in-person support groups for the Jewish community. More info to come.

However, there are currently in-person groups for the community at large in your area that can be found using the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance group locator at:

For those in NYC, there's an excellent peer-to-peer support group that meets twice a week—the Mood Disorders Support Group of New York. They also offer frequent lectures given by mental health professionals. More information is available at:
