To provide a unique environment where folks who have dissociative identity disorder (DID) can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, support, and learn from each other.
ACHIEVING OUR GOAL
Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and administrators. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Adequate guidelines are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the board. Staff regularly monitors posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment for everyone. As a friendly and kind community, we support and validate each other as equally special and significant.

Our Support Forum
provides for members environments of acceptance, compassion, and privacy. Here at IGDID, staff supports as each member becomes more acquainted and familiar with navigating and participating on the forums. Discussion is open. All age groups are welcome to post on the board. Posts are completely private and not fed into any search engines - such as google or yahoo - as you will see on 'open boards'.
There are three levels of access on the support forums - as shown at the bottom of the main forum page. 1) Open access - all guest and members can read and post. 2) ' Junior Member' (members with less than 100 posts) access - forums where discussion is less 'personal'. 3) 'Advanced/Advanced with Satanic Ritual Abuse/Mind Control' members (100+ posts) - access to all areas including chat rooms.
We find that limiting forums to Junior Members helps everyone to feel comfortable as newer members find their way around and get to know each other before sharing and/or reading more personal discussion.
Our Chat Rooms
We have 15 Chat Rooms all with audio/video capability. Members and staff hold regular scheduled chat times for different topics, general discussion, fun activities (like karaoke), and littles/teens chat. Otherwise, the rooms are open at all times for Advanced Members, as well as having chat sessions for junior members.
One to One Peer Support for all Members
Set an appointment with one of our peer supporters. This is not counseling or therapy, but a way to talk to someone one-one in a private and confidential setting - happening within our private chat rooms.
Here we offer different products, gifts, etc. Proceeds from the store help us to keep the board and website running ad-free and the cost of chat rooms.
We offer for guests and member an array of resources including books Books, Articles, Members' projects, writing, and art, Members' Web Sites, and Blogs. For additional help navigating the board, applying for membership, or setting up your profile, please go to our Help Section where there are several video tutorials. Also, take a moment to read our Policies and Guidelines.
We appreciate your interest in our site.
