DID Youth Chat

 

Weekly hosted chat for littles/middles (DID alters under 13) to come together and share their joys and hardships with each other in a safe and supportive environment. Topics have included navigating the grownup world, being heard within the system, and trusting ourselves and others. The format is casual - you're free to share anything relevant on the topic being discussed, or to just sit back and listen to others, if that's what you prefer. There's often a game or a short story too. The chat takes place in the "DID Youth" room, see the chat schedule for times and dates.
