Support

The following groups are for support, Q&A, mutual aid, sharing information, and/or local advocacy efforts. Each group has different rules about who can join. Be sure to answer any membership questions when you ask to join.

FACEBOOK GROUPS

To see a selection of Fragrance Free groups on Facebook, use this link, which will search Facebook using the keywords fragrance+free and the filter for Groups. (The link might not provide results on a phone, but it works on a PC.)

Here are some reputable Facebook groups we’re familiar with:

MCS Concerted Collective

Scent and Fragrance Allergy Board

EI Safe Housing

Here’s our map of Local Facebook groups (usually open to local people only). If the map doesn’t work for you, see our list here.

If there’s no local Facebook group for your area and you’d like to start one following the Fragrance Free Friends model:
FIRST please join Fragrance Free Friends Admins. This will give you the best shot at success with your new group. Local groups can help in ways the big groups cannot, but you’ll need to learn best practices in order to harness this potential. The admins group provides: (1) very important setup guidance, (2) a way to identify other admins/areas (so you don’t duplicate efforts), and (3) a way to announce your new group so we can publicize it here and elsewhere.

Other Groups:

www.chemsense.com is the website of a Maryland area MCS support group that has meetings in person, by phone, and online. Membership is not geographically restricted. The website is not super-updated, so it is advisable to get on their e-mail list by contacting Warren at w.black{at}}verizon.net
