    Interesting concept. I must admit I am/was skeptical, but when I thought about it, I kinda realized that I use the /bipolar subreddit in much the same way. I've been through a journey from thinking that "everybody feels this way"(depression and hypomania as a teenager) to "holy fuck I am a freak I must bury this inside" (dealing with depression, hypomania and suicidal ideation as an adult). I suppose a controlled and facilitated group session is somewhat different than a uncontrolled, unfacilitated and random subreddit filled with to a varying degree of stable/unstable people.

    Hm. Thanks for this - it's food for thought.

    Could you hold two meetings back to back, bringing numbers down to 9 or so? Or just lengthen the time slot and make it a "drop in" session where people can come and go?
