Virtual Support Group.

For those of you who would enjoy attending a support group but are unable to for reasons of scheduling, transportation, or geography, we have discovered an excellent alternate solution: a virtual support group. If you have access to the internet, you can contact the TBI chat page twenty-four hours a day. (If you do not yet have access, call your local public library to find out if they can provide you with access.)
