SOS – Survivors of Suicide is a pretty good support group for people in Second Life who have depression or other mental health challenges. They are a peer-support group, but chat is fairly-well moderated. They also have inworld group meetings and are involved in admirable fundraising events such as this one.

In September 2016, the team of Spoonful Of Sugar (SOS) held their inaugural event aimed at raising money for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). Also known as Doctors Without Borders, MSF is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation delivering emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters, and exclusion from healthcare. They provide assistance and medical care to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

That SOS event raised over L$3 million (US $11,118) for MSF, an incredible total for a first event, and the organising team are hoping to beat that total in 2017. Work is already progressing on the Spring 2017 Spoonful Of Sugar festival, which will take place between Saturday, March 18th, 2017 and Saturday, April 1st, 2017 inclusive.
