Members of Stroke Support WhatsApp Group
Members of Stroke Support WhatsApp Group

General Rules of the Stroke Support Whatsapp Group

  1. Please introduce yourself immediately upon joining. Just a small introduction – name, location and any stroke related experience would suffice.
  2. Stay as close as possible to the purpose of the group – which is to encourage and inform stroke survivors and caregivers on aspects which may be of direct relevance and interest to them. Else the group may quickly become irrelevant and without purpose very soon, just like many other groups we may already be members of.
  3. Having said that, in the highly interconnected and dynamic world we live with, many things are subjective – what could be encouraging for me may have been seen ten times earlier by you, for instance. Please exercise your own discretion and judgement on same. And perhaps limit your posts to one a day. Best may be to try and be ‘original’ or add your input to what you post.
  4. Avoid controversial and irrelevant topics such as religion and politics. NO sales promotion of any kind. If sales promotion is your purpose of joining the group, please speak off-group to the admin to check possibilities. All who promote any paid product / service on the group are liable to be removed at any time.
  5. If you are forwarding something that seems ‘extraordinary’ ( even if relevant ) , it maybe better to check that it is not fake or unreliable to begin with, or at least add your comments thereupon that the same is not verified by you.
  6. Talk ! – this is very important and one of the main purposes of this group. Share your achievements and concerns. While there may not be ready and immediate solutions just the very act of talking and finding supportive people is a strong help. Please do NOT lurk around ..if you do not feel like speaking often, perhaps a message on a weekend would suffice.
  7. If a conversation is developing into a one to one dialogue, you may decide it is better to have the same off-group.
  8. If you have any serious issue concerning a group member, please talk off-group to the admin . Further, note that any advise you follow when given by anyone on the group is totally at your own risk and responsibility.
  9. You may like to ‘mute’ the group so you are not disturbed each time the group receives a message.
  10. Most of all, please try to add value via each message you post- major checks could be : Is it relevant ? Is it true ? and could it lead to conversations ?
    A group is made by conversations amongst members. Thank you for joining in !
