The Food and Mood Project has recently created an on-line support group which is hosted by SmartGroups.com and is free to join.
This is intended to be a space for you to share your exploration of the links between what you eat and how you feel - mentally and emotionally, as well as physically.
All it takes to join is to visit the group home page or send an email to subscribe to the group (details below). You will then be a member of the support group and can exchange emails with other members of the group.
The group will be quite small to start with - you certainly won't be inundated with emails and can expect to receive just a few each week. Then, when the group gets too big to be manageable we will re-think the membership arrangements.
When you have joined and decide to email the group, your message will automatically be sent to each group member who may then reply, also by sending a message to the whole group.
So its a bit like having a conversation with a group of friends but it has the advantage of being more under your control - taking place at times that suit you and allowing you to think a bit more about what you want to say or need to ask.
If this is the first email group you've heard of or considered joining it can be a bit scary at first - but we hope you will take part and we are sure you'll find it both helpful and enjoyable.
