The Alliance encourages individuals to join and discuss symptoms, treatment, drugs and side effects, stigma, proper diagnosis, relationships with friends and relatives, coping skills, sleep, exercise, nutrition, self-image, finding professional help, making and keeping friends, dating, and other issues important to the GLBT community. All information discussed is confidential and meetings are led by peers (other people who are recovering from an illness).
