Based on initial reports, the virtual support group is not being widely used.
Two focus group discussions with 12 youth were conducted to receive feedback about the virtual support groups in July 2013.
Suggestions to improve the support group: included adding a feature to enable anonymity while chatting, provision of situation-specific information, ability to interact with peers other than only the counselor, having a critical mass of peers on the platform to chat with at all times, having the availability to see past chats from other people, and being able to leave questions for the counselors to answer if they are not online at the same time.
There were many positive responses relating to the concept of having a virtual support group and the support and information that it has the potential to provide outside of club visits.
