No support group for partners in your area? If a local support group isn't available in your area, you might consider starting one yourself. We have posted some sample documents that you could use to get such a group started. If you choose to start a group using our documents as a template, please let us know how it goes! We want to improve those documents and develop some shared experiences that can make it easier for others to create support groups for partners of survivors.
