Statement on Feedback

The Chapter Board considered the issue of feedback. The Board reminds members that feedback should be aimed at helping the person who has just shared. This means no questions about how they liked a certain medication, no asking if they recommend their psychiatrist/therapist, no questions about the nature of their condition, no general questions about the illness and its treatment when it is not your turn to share, and no comments or questions that direct attention away from the problems of the sharer and towards those of the questioner.

We remind you that you may ask whatever questions you want of whoever you want after the meeting or during the week between meetings. Don’t forget that the Chapter has a library with many books that you may consult.

If the facilitator interrupts you to bring the focus back to the person who just shared, please cooperate. Keep the meeting focused on support.

Thank you for your understanding and assistance.
