Hi! We are PSAW, a born-digital peer support group that focuses on overcoming anxiety, and getting back to being who we want to be. We believe in the power of peer support, and lived experience – when it comes to mental illness, none of us are special — someone is feeling the same things as you, no matter how messed up you may feel your thoughts are.
PSAW is an eight week community-driven course that takes place several times a year. We are goal-oriented, honest, supportive and positive. We work through Google Hangouts, a free, video chat service, as to allow our members to be located anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
While we are here to help, we are not a therapy group. We do not recommend taking (or not taking) medications, as we are not doctors, nor do we claim to be. We are simply a community of individuals who are looking to help each other improve our collective mental health.
If you are interested in hearing more, please feel free to reach out to the facilitators, Jenn and Andrew, via the contact page.
