Support/Social

This list will be updated on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact me if you spot broken links or know of active groups missing from the list.

Social and Support Groups often feature live meetings in their local area and schedule regular social functions throughout the year. Many “live meeting” groups also maintain a message board on one of a number of social media platforms, such as Yahoo, Meetup and Facebook. A few groups utilize only a message board or forum.

The words “HELP” or “Support” in the group’s name indicates the group is focused on support only. All other groups may feature a social component.

Facebook Groups for the HSV and HPV community are plentiful and thriving, and 100% private/hidden. Some have thousands of members interacting with each other every day. Please feel free to contact Cat to join the Facebook H community. You’ll be very glad you did.
