Get Peer Support

PFLAG provides either one-on-one peer support or group peer support.

Note that monthly group support meetings are currently provided via secure Zoom.

Our next online Peer Support meeting is Tuesday, March 5, 2024 from 7-8 PM

(Future meeting date: April 2, 2024)

Monthly Group Support Meetings

To attend the next group support meeting, follow this link to eventbrite and click 'reserve a spot' to complete registration.

 

We meet at 7:00 pm the first Tuesday of each month in a secure online environment via Zoom. Registration is required each month to attend. All information provided remains strictly confidential. You will receive a confirmation email once you register. Don't see it? Check your junk/spam folder.

The Zoom link will be emailed to you on the day of the meeting at noon. Each virtual meeting link is unique, and is only shared with those who have registered to attend by 12 PM the day before the next meeting.

If you need support before our next monthly meeting or prefer a non-group setting, we have individuals who are willing to exchange emails, talk on the phone, meet for coffee... whatever makes you comfortable and provides the support you need. Just fill out and submit the form at the bottom of the page.

What to Expect at a Meeting

  • We quietly greet newcomers and returning members.
  • We open the meeting reading the PFLAG mission statement and stressing to all the requirement of confidentiality.  "What is said here stays here."

  • We announce any upcoming events involving our Portland PFLAG chapter.
  • We introduce ourselves and briefly explain why we are attending the meeting. Newcomers can participate to the degree they feel comfortable.

  • We open the support part of the meeting to any topic that attendees wish to discuss: concerns, dilemmas, struggles, joys or insights.
  • In the past, when meetings could be in person, some meetings would feature a speaker or panel discussion during the second hour.  That may return after the pandemic has been brought into control.

One-on-One Support

If you need help before our next monthly meeting or prefer a non-group setting, we have individuals who are willing to email, talk on the phone, meet for coffee...whatever makes you comfortable and provides the support you need.

We make every attempt to have someone get back to you within 48 hours, but sometimes it can take up to 7 days as we are a 100% volunteer organization. Just fill out and submit the form below.  All information provided remains confidential.
