Zoom Meetings

Zoom has become one of the most common communication tools in use today. Ripple along with many other companies, organizations, supporters, educators, and friends just keeping touch has decided to take advantage of this amazing platform. This page contains information on the groups we host, guidelines are different for each group but all revolve around the mutual respect of one another.

Current Meetings:

Late Night Peer Support Group

The late night peer support group is hosted by two certified Recovery Support Specialists and runs on Tuesday and Thursday nights. This group is never postponed or canceled, we have held this meetings on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Years Eve because those holidays fell on regularly scheduled nights. The meeting starts at 10:00PM and runs until midnight. For more information and group guidelines click Here.

If You’re Talking, There’s Time

A support group inspired by Alternatives to Suicide, created by the Wildflower Alliance of Western Massachusetts sometimes referred to as Alt2su which is a peer driven, nonjudgmental environment which provides a safe space to talk about your thoughts and feelings. Meetings are currently held on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday nights from 8:00 – 9:30PM. For more information and group guidelines click Here

About our Zoom Meetings

Ripple’s pilot program started on September 15th, 2020, two nights during the week, Tuesdays and Thursdays each lasting two hours. The hours chosen were 10:00PM until Midnight. Some of these groups started earlier or ended later as people needed more time to talk. The meeting hosts have added nights upon request which we did whenever able.

Starting on January 3rd, 2021 Ripple will officially add Sunday nights to the permanent schedule. It made the most sense and allowed us to bridge a 4 day gap in meetings every week. The Sunday meetings will also be from 10:00PM – Midnight but we expect that they will run a little later on occasion.
