Here's a place to practice connection.

"All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connect us as neighbors—in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver."


- Mr. Rogers

We’re sick of… 

Bullshitting through life

Hiding our true selves

Suffering in silence

Wondering if it’s just us

Celebrating alone

 

Not being there for others

While you're building your own raft...

...we'd love to have you in this community. Let's learn connection together.

But, really, do you need a community like this?

Only you can answer that.

Here are a few questions to help you think about it. 

1.  Do you have all the emotional support you need to live a happy, successful life?

2. Can the people around you relate to what you're going through?

3. Do you have enough opportunities to process your thoughts and feelings?

4. Does your community support you as much/often as you support them?

5. Are people coming to you for support? Do they feel like you're a safe place?

6. Is the advice/encouragement/feedback you receive largely helpful?

7. Are you able to be yourself, vulnerable, and honest – about everything?

8. Does your community give you undivided attention and space to process?

This isn't therapy, but...

...if you're in therapy,
this is an awesome supplement.

Therapy gives us skills to practice, new concepts to internalize, and trauma to heal. Did you ever wish you had a session after your therapy – to process everything you just talked about in therapy? Because, same. Besides, it's a hell of a lot cheaper to process with your peers after your therapy sessions.

It's all about the meetings.

All of our meetings are structured using our tool for connection: REALs. It makes connection a little more approachable when we know the format. It's the same...every time. We Rate our week (1-10), Explain our rating, Ask for the support we need, and then Listen for a takeaway that would help get us through.

Most people have quite a few questions right about now.

SCRIBBLE-13.png

Number 1 Question:
You put everyone together?
(Aren't support groups supposed to be specialized?)

Yes. We wanted to create a space where we can support each other as humans, regardless of our background or walk of life. However, we acknowledge that societal dynamics will make their way into our groups.

 

For instance, some women may not feel completely safe to open up if there are men in their group. POC might not feel comfortable discussing racial tensions with the white people in their group. People with political differences may shy away from people on the other side of the aisle. We are working to create a place where we can all feel safe to share, but if you don’t feel safe with people in your group, we absolutely encourage you to have boundaries and let them earn your trust. We also recommend finding exclusive support groups for women, POC, lgbtq, etc. because you may feel even safer there.

 

We have very important guidelines in the framework that help us make this an equitable place for everyone. None of us are perfect, even we as founders have to hold each other accountable to the framework often.

 

That said, we have absolutely zero tolerance for sexism, racism, homophobia, bigotry of any kind. Especially as jokes.

Oh, you have more questions?

That's understandable. 

Here are some that we get asked pretty often.

Maybe you're wondering the same things.

How is this different
from therapy?

Are you lgbtqia+
affirming?

Do you have
meetings for kids?

What's your refund 
policy?

Altogether different. We are a group of peers. We cannot diagnose, prescribe medication, or recommend treatments for mental health concerns.

So much yes. We know that our lgbtqia+ neighbors have fewer options for emotional support than their counterparts. We're hoping to change that.

Right now, unfortunately not. But a kids' community is our three-year list. We're really passionate about kids getting the support they need.

We want you to love it here! If we're not the right fit, let us know within 30 days and we'll refund you. UNLESS we had to kick you out for being rude.

What if I'm neurodivergent
or have a disability?

We're committed to including everyone who can participate in our format. If you are having trouble, please let us know what we can do to change things.

Is this networking
or a mastermind?

Am I gonna get
lectured/judged?

Talking emotions is brand new to me. Can I still join?

It depends. You can ask your group for business advice, if that would help you most. But this is the place to get love and support...not leads.

Geez, no. Who wants that? Our format lets you ask for whatever kind of feedback you're looking for: ideas, empathy, or just space to dump. 

Of course! Dude, we're all still learning and it's scary. We have safeguards in place to help you along the way. Just pay attention to the guidelines.

The Raft Project is incredible. They're not a replacement for therapy but are and will be a safe place for you to speak and be heard. They're really doing the work and have created something so unique and special.
