The Open Nest is grateful that you have chosen to be a part of our online support group. We are a socially interactive body here to help each other heal, recover, develop and advance. The leadership body of The Open Nest does not engage in the practice of medicine nor claim to have medical knowledge. The volunteers who lead this group are not trained to provide professional group therapy services.


In all cases, the leadership of The Open Nest recommends that you consult your own physician regarding any course of treatment or medication discussed in the group. Any products or therapies described should not be construed as an endorsement. We ask that you keep in mind when posting or commenting that this is a mental health group for ALL women of color, anything not affiliated with our struggles in this area will be removed. Please be sensitive in your discussions concerning religion and respect that there are different faith groups represented here in the Nest. Finally we ask that everyone be cordial and civil in their responses toward others. Thank you for your understanding, presence, participation, and contributions to The Open Nest.
