Herpes Support Group Listings and Reminders

I know @Adrial has a blog page with support group info but there's always new groups cropping up and we have people looking for groups here all the time... so if you happen to know of a group/meeting/how to find groups in your area, please list it here :)

Starting it off with this one from another discussion and Adrial's blog page link:



Portland Area HELP Group (support group meeting)
First Friday of every month
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Good Samaritan Hospital in NW Portland, 1040 NW 22nd Portland Oregon

Meets on the first Friday of each month at Good Samaritan Hospital in NW Portland.

For more info, please email portlandareahelp@aol.com
We will be in the Good Samaritan Medical Building 2 in the 2nd floor conference room, just off the elevator. 1040 NW 22nd, attached to parking garage #2


  • the meetup group in the tampa area is beginning to have @ every 3 weeks an emotional support meeting on top of the more social stuff. we will be having our second next week.
  • Can you add the contact info to your post @seeker?
  • well its somewhat convoluted.
    this is the website you contact thru. there is a process as its anonymous on meetup. there is a tampa and an Orlando group together. the Orlando one has 1x a month support meetings and the tampa one has restarted one at roughly 3 week intervals. meeting in st pete for the time being. plus there are lots of social gatherings from dinner to music, etc.
  • Thanks - this is the problem that many of the "Support Groups" are anonymous/hidden ... understandably ... but that contradicts what they are trying to do ... get rid of the pain and stigma :/
  • Can you find any support groups in Sacramento California? @wcsdancer2010
  • Here is a link to a list of support groups http://herpeslife.com/herpes-support-groups/. Googleing Herpes Support Sacramento may turn one up. If one is not available in Sacramento check to see if one is within a 2 or 3 hour drive of Sacramento. I used to attend the now defunct group in Kansas City years ago. It was not unusaul for some people to make a 2 or 3 hour drive to attend a meeting. It may take some planning a month or two in advance.
  • This is all I have in my various resources for California. Contact all of them - you never know which one may know one of the secret Meet-up or FB groups:

  • Where are my H+Peeps at in south west Florida!? Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater/Orlando
    I didn't find a support group off the support info page for this area and was hoping, maybe we could start our own and pave the way! Somewhere fun to meet over drinks could be fun and if you're under age, no worries! You can still join us and be our DDs!! Haha... I kid! I kid!!! Maybe? Lol.... Give me a holla! 33yr old female, H+ for 9 months.
