The Surviving Mold Membership was established in May 2013. A group of us recognized that we shared a similar motivation to attempt to understand the need to share information about adverse health effects acquired following exposure to the interior environment of water-damaged buildings. The purpose of the service is to discuss issues in an open and objective manner, and to share and benefit from each other's knowledge and experience via the aggregated Members Only emails.  Unfortunately, we are not yet ready for patients to discuss issues with each other in an open forum. This notice itself is based on a template used elsewhere on the Internet.

On a few occasions, there have been problems when members did not remain focused on the purpose of the group. Problems have included derogatory personal remarks or sharing confidential opinions and issues outside the group without consent. THIS IS NOT ALLOWED!
