The journey to rationality and atheism is not always easy. Here are some organizations which may help.

Advocacy Groups

Recovering From Religion

Recovering From Religion establishes and supports local groups and provides resources for people “from doubting theist to ardent atheist” who are struggling with negative after-effects of religion. 

They also, “Educate the secular communities about the tremendous need for providing this encouragement and support to people who identify as recovering from religion.”  In the works is their Hotline Project which will provide a listening ear and referrals to support services 24-hours-a-day.

Camp Quest

Camp Quest camps provide a traditional sleep away summer camp experience for kids 8-17, with a wide range of activities. In addition to traditional summer camp activities, Camp Quest offers educational activities focused on critical thinking, ethics, scientific inquiry, philosophy, and comparative religion.   It is particularly geared towards building a community for children from atheist, agnostic, humanist and other freethinking families. Their goal is to provide a place where children can explore their developing worldviews, ask questions, and make friends in an environment that is supportive of critical thinking and skepticism.

Freedom From Religion Foundation

Promotes nontheism and defend the constitutional separation between religion and government. With more than 30,000 members, FFRF, a 501(c)(3) nonprophet nonprofit, works as an effective state/church watchdog and voice for freethought (atheism, agnosticism, skepticism).

Secular Student Alliance

The Secular Student Alliance empowers secular students to proudly express their identity, build welcoming communities, promote secular values, and set a course for lifelong activism.

Support Groups

The Clergy Project

The Clergy Project is a confidential online community for active and former professional clergy/religious leaders who do not hold supernatural beliefs….Currently, the community’s 556 plus members use it to support, network and discuss what it’s like being an unbelieving professional in a religious community or being an unbeliever as ex-clergy in their world.

Secular Therapist Project

The Secular Therapist Project is “an effort to connect secular therapists with clients who prefer a therapist that will use proven, state-of-the-art therapeutic methods that do not involve supernatural or religious elements.” One unique feature is the website’s ability to connect secular clients and secular therapists with each other while preserving anonymity until they are both ready to disclose their identities.
