Email Lists and Online Forums

Since Yahoo Groups was deactivated in January 2020, Plural Activism has moved elsewhere. Founded by the late Oure Gaiya group, this is something a little different from the usual victims' support chat. "Many multiples or people 'diagnosed' as 'suffering' from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), or Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) have decided to change the way they are viewed, treated and labled. We no longer accept being discouraged, even inhibited, from being the people we are, hiding who we are out of fear. No longer do we accept the medical model opinion that being plural/multiple is a disorder....
This list will encourage and discuss, support and act to change society's idea that we are disordered, but rather are healthy individuals that share a single body." ... Singlets are welcome. Home of the Multiplicity 101 Podcast. The official newsletter is Plural Voices (PDF)

Power to the Plurals Stronghold System's resource site. Creators of The Plural Association warmline, where "Our main mission goal is: Empower plurals, where plurals is defined as everyone who self-identifies as being or having more than one individual within a single body, by developing and using their capacities to actively shape their own lives and that of the plural community and the society of which they are part, in economic, social and political terms." For discussions check out AlterNation.

The Multiplicity Community at Livejournal is not very active any more but is still around.

There is a plurality forum for respectful discussion at Reddit's /r/plural.

Nsashaell, Branches, Faith Formation & Chimera House will eventually have a library of healthy multiplicity resources on meanwhile, feel free to sign up and chat. "Our hope is to provide a safe place for all types of plurals, including fictives, to discuss topics and support each other."

Pagmies' Plurality forum is dead but the IRC chats (below) live on.

A lot of the old elists have closed down. If someone could direct us to the current Dark Personalities discussion group we'd appreciate it.

Livejournal Interest: Multiplicity A lot of multiples have their webdiaries on Livejournal. If you do, you can put multiplicity on your Interests to be added to this list.

Chat Here!

These chats are owned and operated by other groups; we do not own or run any chats.

IRC #plurality Web Access at and enter #plurality or #pluralityadults in the "Channel" slot. (Open discussion of multiplicity, not MPD or DID or abuse-survivorship oriented.

You can also use an IRC program -- we recommend or .

IRC #livingplural Web Access at and enter #livingplural in the Channel slot. "Safe base for any plural, otherkin, singlet or various allies." Extra rooms are #triggerytopics, #littleroom and #darklings, which should be self-explanatory. If using Trillian or Pidgin, connect via and port number 6667, then type in /join #livingplural or whichever room you are joining.

SANCTUARY: SAfe Network Community, The Underground Abuse Refuge. This is a survivor chat. Begun as an online forum on spousal abuse, it's open not only to all abuse survivors but to friends and supportive family. It is run as a MUD (Multi-User Dimension), and is essentially a very large, complex set of chat rooms and bulletin boards. SANCTUARY is and has always been open to multiples.

Use a telnet program such as BBSFox to connect directly to Sanctuary.

Heritage site, for an activist group no longer active although updated occasionally. Dedicated to improving public perceptions of multiple personality, Pavilion members worked actively for change through a variety of publicity projects. Most of the action these days is on the Pavilion Hall Livejournal If you want to help in an active group, join Plural Activism.

Constantly updated so keep checking back.

If you feel like you are both singlet and plural, that you are "multiple-ish", "not multiple enough", or in an in-between, ambiguous state, try reading these articles about being median at Pavilion and see if they describe your situation.

Chrysanthème is shut down for good. It will eventually return on a mirror site.

Resources by and for autistic-spectrum people. Don't fall for disempowering bullshit from Auti$m $peaks - come here and speak for yourself.

Feel you really do have MPD/DID, multiple personality disorder
or dissociative identity disorder?

If you are multiple and you find that the traditional trauma/dissociation/splitting, therapy-based model is helpful, and does reflect who you are:

Abuse-Trauma Therapy and Recovery:
Find A Therapist

If you are looking for a mental health professional in your area, the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation has a database of trauma recovery/PTSD/MPD-DID/dissociative disorder therapists.

Other support sites include Rainn and Survivors of Incest Anonymous: if you were abused by clergy, go to Snap.

Peer Support for Multiples Everyone has many stories about themselves and their lives. In telling our stories we tell ourselves and others who we are, where we've been and where we're headed. What we need is someone who can listen and really hear -- someone who has been there. Jade Miller& offers structured peer support for other multiples using narrative therapy, in a process similar to life coaching. Instead of having a pathological narrative imposed on us (having problems that need to be "fixed"), narrative therapy sees multiples as "moving in and out of stories that are interwoven by specific themes and challenges." This may provide a way for people in a system to learn from and understand each other through their individual stories as well as the group's. See Jade&'s own journeys at Thoughts from J8.

What do you do after therapy? How do you organize and manage your lives? Lizabeth Casada went through classic blackout MPD/DID, therapy and integration -- now she wants to help other multiples (integrated and not) answer these questions for themselves.

A Life After Trauma -- From Lizabeth Casada and newly updated for 2020! Find social support, resources and professionals. "Listings of online support groups, meet ups, conferences, helpful websites, phone apps, books, blogs and tools for you to use to begin to move past your trauma."

Contact Information: - A Life After Trauma / 411 Walnut Street #13101 / Green Cove Springs, FL 32043

Holding Space -- Lizabeth Casada is still working on this. Contact her for details. This will be a separate site "for people still waiting to feel like someone understands them and they are not alone... a place where we can exchange ideas, talk openly about trauma, PTSD, and living with DID without the worry about security in social media" (so it will NOT be on Facebook!!)

Many Voices - All back issues of the Many Voices newsletter are now available as free PDFs, there will be NO new issues BUT two new online support communities.

Click here to read about Many Voices, A Tribute to Lynn Wasnak, and New Resources for Abuse Survivors

Founded in 1989, Many Voices was an independent newsletter written BY (not just for) people recovering from child abuse or trauma, dissociative disorder, PTSD or trauma -- multiples and singlets. It was the flagship publication for the voices of abuse survivors and multiples to speak up and be heard.

Lynn's daughter Diane says: "In January 2014, the following was found in minutes from a Board of Directors Meeting dated 9/20/2011. Lynn was nine months into Chemotherapy at this point.

"'ISST-D Liaison. I already contacted our liaison at ISST-D telling her to expect that we will have "contingency plans" to discuss with them.

"'I have had excellent contacts with them since MV began, and if we are not able to keep MV going, (when I am gone), this is the place I want to "take over", even if all they do is make back issues available on the web in perpetuity.' (THEY HAVE! Back issues free online now!)

"Many Voices issues are now the property of The International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation."

Leave a comment about Lynn at the Awareness Center or sign Lynn's memorial guestbook.
