Holidays can be one of the most challenging times of year for survivors and grieving families. To help you cope during what may be a difficult time, Families of September 11 (FOS11) will be hosting a special chat room discussion next week on Tuesday, November 22 from 8:00-9:00 PM EST.

We encourage you to participate so that you can …
• Discuss particular issues that you face
• Learn and share coping strategies
• Support others in the 9/11 community

The FOS11 Chat Program provides you with an anonymous and supportive environment to explore issues of concern with a licensed mental health professional and your peers. As a reminder, all participants must be 18 years of age or older and FOS11 members (please see below on how to register as a member for free). Dr. Donna Gaffney, a noted trauma specialist, will facilitate the chat.
