Online Support Groups


Chat with other recoverers and carers in one of Beat's chat rooms. The groups offer a safe and supportive environment where you can talk to others who are in a similar situation, in real time. They are a useful and positive experience, especially for people who cannot access a face-to-face support group, due to their location or personal circumstances.


Online Self Help & Support groups are facilitated by Beat moderators who check everything posted before it is shared. You will need to register on the Beat website to participate in these online support services.



We're always looking for new topics for themed live chats. Past topics have included holidays, self esteem and exam stress.

If you have a topic you think others would like to talk about, please email
