A simple and effective app with active “circles” or support groups at almost any hour of the day. Each circle is created and guided by a real human (on a purely voluntary basis) and features both voice and chat. Aside from your first name users are anonymous even to the group moderators. I support this platform by moderating a group every Friday night at 9pm EST.
