Any Zoom / video chat SA support groups out there?


Hi guys,
I'm on the hunt for a social anxiety support group that's online via Zoom or some other video chat. Preferably run by a mental health professional, but I'm not picky.
I've been looking, but everything I've found so far is either a regional thing only temporarily moved online due to COVID, wants me to pay money, or is a forum or chatroom type thing.
Like, I know we're all too afraid to talk to each other face-to-face if we don't have to, but come on y'all xD
Anybody know of anything like this that exists out there?

We all know the stigma of mental health. Being anonymous here is one of the things I treasure about this website...it allows me to discuss issues without worrying about someone close finding out. I wouldn't be comfortable doing this on a video chat. But if that's what you want, I wish you luck.

When is a Door not a door ?

I wouldn't mind at all though I wouldn't show myself on video, just personally speaking. I've been on a forum zoom meeting where it's been 2-3 people talking with each other and a few others chilling out. I think it's a good idea but maybe with a moderator and personal invite, an even better idea. So far, I don't know if a moderated zoom chat exists.

You should create a website for an SA group for Zoom, i am sure it will work. Maybe theres some way you can use SAS to promote this site, just link it in the description of your signature.

Yeah, it's a thought I've been having, starting something of my own. I've been amazed thus far at how few resources there are out there for social anxiety disorder! I don't think I'd have the nerve to do it, though, at least not yet. Maybe a project for future me down the line
