  1. Linda

    I am looking for a support group for parents of children who are in overseas ngo’s (non-governmental organizations) in dangerous parts of the world. My son was in the Dominican Republic for over 3 yrs. first with the Peace Corp and then another ngo. This time he has his heart set on Africa, excluding South Africa, where he has already been with a ngo. He has not received his station yet, but I am worried sick. This is what he wants to do, and I know I can’t change his mind, even if I wanted to. What I need is a group (probably exclusively on-line) to help me cope with my anxiety. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  2. Audri

    Is there any kind of support group for partners/friends/etc of someone who is depressed?

    • Todd
