PANDAS Network began out of a passion and determination for helping others. If you are inspired to lead and connect others with similar experiences in your city or state, please consider starting a support group.
When you lead a support group, you can be as involved as you want. Some prefer to meet in person weekly, monthly or quarterly. Some people prefer to run a local email chain. PANDAS Network will not make you run your support group a certain way or make you meet a certain number of times. Obviously, meeting occasionally would be ideal as seeing someone in-person who can relate to your experience is a breath of fresh air when it comes to PANDAS and PANS!
WHY NOT JUST JOIN A FACEBOOK GROUP?
Facebook groups may be helpful, but they can also be overwhelming. If you choose to join a group, please be aware of the group’s visibility if you are sharing personal information. Also, believe or not, not everyone is on facebook. This is why PANDAS Network is especially interested in fostering in-person groups where all are welcome and you can sit and actually talk.
