We (another lady and myself) are starting a support group for women whose husbands have a mental illness. We met last week and both feel the overwhelming need to do this ... since nothing exists in our area. Neither of us have ever been a part of a support group (except going to Families Anonymous for a few weeks). I am looking for ideas/suggestions that have worked (or not)for groups that you may belong to. I have a social work background and she has a masters in psychology (she's a clinical therapist) so that part is covered. Thanks in advance.
