Multiplied By One Org offers online support groups for CPTSD, all dissociative disorders, and Loved Ones of Dissociative Identity Disorder systems. Groups are a combination of peer and qualified support in an environment conducive to self-expression, coping skills, and a safe-space to relate.

How are the groups run?
What safety measures are taken?
What are the groups like?
The format of the groups is conversation-style. A supportive, judgement-free space creates a sense of community. Members learn from each other’s experiences, feel comfort from feeling less alone, and build skills and confidence.
The hosts of the groups are a combination of peers with lived experience and qualifications to run a group, or are also social workers or counsellors in training or a graduate.
What is the group stance on inclusivity?
When it comes to ethnicity, gender, and gender identity, the only thing we do not tolerate is intolerance. Multiplied By One Org is LGBTQ inclusive, which includes EVERY letter.
After signing up, individuals will be invited to meet 1:1 with a member of the Multiplied By One team for a few pre-screening questions. This is for group security to prevent trolls, as well as to answer any questions or concerns and set everyone up with the right group. Applicants will not be approved to join a group without a pre-screening call. These conversations are conducted in a comfortable manner with no pressure or sense of interrogation. It is important that our members’ sense of safety is protected, which extends to applicants.
There is a low monthly subscription fee with an option for yearly that includes one loved one for the associated group. The fee supports the continuance of our programs, which includes ensuring video software licensing. For those genuinely unable to afford the fee, you can request to be sponsored by Multiplied By One Org: Simply select the option in the form.

Did you apply and not hear back?
Check your spam filter, as we reply to every submission with a valid email address. On the rare occasion, the contact bounces, as there may be a typo in the input email. If this may have been your case, reach out to the contact email listed on the Org Home Page.
Volunteer Group Hosts needed
Those interested who hold related qualifications may find the application form on the volunteer page.
We have a quality capacity limit for each group list that is most conducive for a conversation where members can best hold a chance to speak. Some group lists may find around 15 in average attendance, including the hosts, while other lists are still growing. When a specific group grows enough, an additional day is added to that category.
Switching between parts/alters is inherent to Dissociative Identity Disorder or OSDD. We support everyone in a system; not only the host. ALL parts welcome!
Each group list per category meets once per week at a set time.
A few of our groups pause for holidays, depending on host availabilities.
This is not a points loss system where you lose access to your membership for missing a certain number of calls. Life plans come up for everyone, and we understand that fully.
This varies between the CPTSD or dissociation groups and the Loved Ones groups, as the context differs. Common points are that members are asked to be in a private space and with earphones if in earshot to respect the group’s confidentiality. Religion and politics may only be spoken of in context to your story or the topic, as pressing specific beliefs or political preferences is beside the point and a button presser we hope to avoid. Respect other members.
You will be provided with a link to the guidelines after your pre-screening, and this will be listed in every group invitation.
Yes, but with one main restriction. Those applying for a dissociative disorder group may also list the other groups for this context, which is included in the same membership. However, as the Loved Ones group needs to allow a space for them to feel comfortable sharing their own experiences, those with DID/OSDD are not admissible, even if they have a Loved One who also has DID.
The subscriptions fees are either 7 USD renewing per month, or 59 USD per year, which costs less overall and for Loved Ones or DID/OSDD systems, this includes a dual membership included in the price. Those with a matching ID code from a loved ones membership may claim the voucher.
Alternatively, there is an option in the sign up form to select sponsorship for those genuinely unable to afford the fee.
The funds support the sustainability and continuance of our programs. This includes licensed Zoom software and keeping the organization’s virtual lights on for general administrative fees. This also contributes to other services for the community.
The only restriction on global location is the applicants accessibility for current available times of day that groups are hosted.
While some group day options are conducive to the Americas in the evening, which falls the next day near noon hour for Australia, or early morning for China, they are the middle of the night for the UK regions.
The reverse holds true for groups held in the morning or early afternoon for Americas, while evening for UK regions, but the middle of the night for Australia or China regions.
