Virtual Support Group Recommendations:
* During virtual support groups plan to be alone or utilize headphones to protect the anonymity of others and private conversations.
* Reduce noise around you and place your microphone on mute if you're not sharing or talking. Also pay attention to your background to not be distracting to other meeting attendees.
* Minimize distractions by not multitasking during the meetings. Try and give your full attention to the support group experience.
* Make sure to continue attending the "meeting before the meeting" and staying after the allotted time. This remains the best time to strengthen relationships with your fellow community members.
* An audio and visual presence is encouraged if possible.
*As going around the circle to determine who shares next is not always feasible "popcorn" style and "pass the stick" style meetings are encouraged.
