To set up a support group, choose a place to meet such as in your home, in a room at the public library, in a church, or in a hospital. Contact someone in charge at your venue of choice to establish the time that you will be allowed to hold your group meetings. Advertise your support group with signs posted in public places such as in laundromats, doctor's offices, and grocery stores. You may also find online forums dedicated to people who are affected by the focus of your support group and post about it on there. Be sure to include a phone number and/or email address where people can contact you to learn more about the group.
