Herpes Support Groups and Herpes Social Groups exist in most major cities in the US and Canada and online.  Only some big cities in the us may have herpes social groups. If you live in the small cities, you will not find herpes support group around you. For people with herpes, herpes dating sites may help you find more people in the same boat.

Herpes support groups are sometimes called “HELP” support groups, and are occasionally affiliated with ASHA, the American Social Health Association.  Herpes social  groups often use terms like “Friends” as in “Bay Area Friends” or “H2O” as in “DC H2O” or “H Club” as in “Atlanta H Club.”   A lot of regional herpes groups can be found on Meetup.com, Yahoo Groups, Facebook and other websites and social media platforms.  Many local herpes groups function as both a Herpes Support Group and a Herpes Social Group.
