This is a peer support group for adults and follows the standard format of a ‘check-in’ (uninterrupted), followed by a general discussion where people can ask advice, share coping strategies and participate in open discussion. There is no requirement to come each week and new members are always welcome. This group is exclusively for people 17 and older who have hair pulling and/or skin picking disorders (friends and family do not accompany members). There is no fee and no coordinating therapist present. Please email or call to find out where and when the group meets.
