Safe Support Groups where survivors come to receive and share support in an atmosphere that promotes healing and validation.

Come and Join Our Safe Virtual Communities

CPTSD Foundation is proud and honored to help support survivors all types of trauma, by offering secret, safe, virtual support groups on Facebook, where you can come and receive the support you deserve. A place where your voice is heard, your feelings validated, and where encouragement is always in abundant supply from others who know what it means to struggle in daily life as a survivor.

If you’d like to learn more about our safe groups, please see the information below about the steps you can take to begin the process of getting plugged into the group or groups that best fit your healing needs.  You are worth it and we’re here right alongside you!

Join Our Safe Support Group

The Safe Support Group is open for new members. This is a private Facebook group, moderated by CPTSD Foundation staff. This group is a safe place for adults living with Complex PTSD who want to come and heal together with other survivors in a safe community.

We have redesigned the group from the ground up and streamlined the registration process.

To get started, simply enter your name and email address in the registration box.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don't like or use Facebook?

We understand you may not want to use Facebook, for privacy or safety concerns. Our groups are secret and private, so nobody will know that you are in one or be able to see what you post.

We do utilize Facebook to facilitate the groups because it’s a widely accessible and popular platform, that offers the added privacy of secret groups.

Plus you can join from virtually anywhere or any device with an internet connection!

Why is there not a group for men only?
We are more than willing to create a group for men only, however to date the male survivors in our CO-ED group advised us that they are happy with their survivor, CO-ED “framily”.

If there is enough interest, we are definitely willing to explore the possibility of creating a male only group.

Are you trying to sell me something too?

Nope! These groups are free and always will be free. Once you join, you are welcome here for as long as you want to be a member and abide by the group guidelines. You are not required to buy anything or sign up for anything else.

We do offer other means of support, including Daily Recovery Support Calls if you are interested, however, this is not required for safe group membership.

Are these groups really private?

Yes! We take your privacy very seriously. The content that you post in any of the groups is not visible outside of the group. As per our guidelines, information shared in the group, stays there.

You can feel confident knowing that nobody will ever know you are in a safe group.

Are your groups moderated?

Yes, our groups have moderators and admins. In addition you can reach out to our Safe Group Coordinator anytime by emailing to “[email protected]”.

Our members conduct themselves in an adult manner and respect each other’s opinions and value their participation. There is never any shaming or judgment, and we have a zero-tolerance policy on bullying and abuse.

What if I have a concern that needs addressed?

Our moderators and admins are available to address any concerns about another member or any content that is shared within the group.

They can be reached via Facebook message, and you can rest assured that your concern will be addressed privately and discretely. We take the safety of the group very seriously and do not tolerate any bullying, abuse, or any member trying to sell or push services within the group.

I learned about the safe groups from Athena’s weekly YouTube videos, and I’m so glad I reached out for help. The wonderful survivors in the group I am in are so supportive, kind, and understanding.

It’s so nice to know others out there get what I’m going through and don’t judge me for my feelings.

Identity not shared out of respect for privacy

I have been in the CO-ED group for over a year now, and I’m so glad I found these wonderful survivors. Thank you Athena and everyone involved for providing a place for us to come and hang out together.

We are like “framily”, and for some of us it’s the first real support we’ve ever had!
