Every Woman Needs a Friend. That’s Why GMF Now Offers Peer-to-Peer Virtual Support Groups For Women

The first GMF Peer-to-Peer Virtual Support sessions for women began the week of Sept 12, 2022, for a six-week pilot program. The program was a success and by popular demand and personal requests, we have decided to continue the virtual sessions in two helpful, supportive, and judgment-free sessions beginning November 28, 2022.

The Glamorous Moms Foundation’s Peer-to-Peer Virtual Support Groups are structured as “Self-Help” groups and are organized and managed by members only who sign up online. The moderators are known as “peers”. Peer facilitators are those who have actually lived (or are living) the experience being addressed by the group. Facilitators are those who are open about their experiences and use their personal stories and experiences to connect with group members on a personal level.

The benefit of our virtual support sessions is to offer comradery, and beneficial, informational support to create a non-judgmental atmosphere for women to express their feelings, stories, and questions with others who can relate.

“Self-help” groups are not the same as “group therapy”. In peer support groups, all members maintain mutually. This holds true even for members of the group who may hold a “license” or formal credentials. All GMF groups will be an “open forum” allowing guests to “drop in”. Discussions will be led by the group moderator – a fellow mom – but discussions will be fueled by the needs, purpose, and interests of the group members of that particular meeting.
