We may dislike Facebook, but there are two features we love very much: Pages and Groups.
Facebook pages are great because you get to choose which topics to follow and which ones not to. Facebook Groups are great because they consist of a community of like-minded individuals.
And that’s why today, we’d like to share 9 Facebook groups for highly sensitive people.
Because if you’re anything like us, you love to scroll through a group’s feed and read about what other people are learning about their daily struggles.
You also like to follow along silently, like a conversation or two, and then learn a thing or two about navigating life as a highly sensitive person.
And maybe even, unlike us, you actually enjoy interacting with people around the topics you care about.

- The group is active with daily interactions
- Discussions are related to highly sensitive people (HSPs), high sensitivity, and the daily challenges HSPs face
- The group has strict rules and guidelines, with an emphasis on ‘no judgement’.
Let’s dive in.
1. Highly Sensitive People
With 47K members (as of the time of writing this), Highly Sensitive People is a private group that’s been in existence since 2008.
This Facebook group explores the Highly Sensitive Person and Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS) as defined by Dr. Elaine Aron. In fact, before you join, the group recommends reading her book of the same title.
You’ll need to answer 4 questions if you’re to join this group. There’s no shortcut to it. And some of the rules and guidelines for this Facebook group are as follows:
- Be kind and diplomatic in your words
- Keep posts succinct and related to HSP.
- Memes, links, and photos need to relate to HSP.
- Be respectful to admins and to all cultures
- This is not an “empath” group, nor a psychic group
- No medical advice or posts of a suicidal nature.
Based on the HSP blog, Highly Sensitive Refuge, this Facebook group is an extension of the online community by Jenn Granneman and Andre Solo.
It’s a private group with 13K members (as of writing this) and daily interactions.
The mission of the group is to prove that high sensitivity can be strong, it’s okay to be an HSP, and the world could use a little more of what HSPs have.
To join the group is simple and straightforward. However, you will be immediately removed and banned from Highly Sensitive Refuge if you share any of the following:
- Hate speech

- Discrimination of any kind
- Suspicious external links
3. Highly Sensitive People Support Group

If the name of this Facebook group sounds familiar, other than the fact that it’s an English statement, it’s because the group is a project by James Williams. And if you don’t know who this is, he’s authored a book in the same name, “Supporting the Highly Sensitive Child”, and 3 others like it.
Learn more about James here.
As for the group, its primary purpose is to provide a safe place for parents and caregivers of highly sensitive children. It’s a place to connect and support each other by sharing personal experiences and relevant resources.

As the name suggests, this is a Facebook group for highly sensitive parents looking for more balance, flow and purpose in life. It’s a group for information, inspiration, and support.
And it’s a community created by Karin Monster-Peters – an energy management and life purpose coach.
According to the About page of the group, this is NOT for you if:
- You’re looking for a place to complain, judge, take advantage of others, tear people down, or instigate ugly communication
- You thrive on drama, excuses, blaming, criticizing, living in victim mode, or in any way avoiding responsibility for your own self, actions, voice or circumstances.
- You can’t take a joke. (Guess this counts us out, as sometimes, we can’t even tell it’s a joke. 🤷🏽♀️)
And some of the group’s posting guidelines are as follows:
- Ask questions that directly relate to being an HSP, living on purpose, and being a parent.
- Feel free to disagree with someone, but please do it respectfully.
- There are 3 strikes to breaching guidelines. On strike one, your post is considered unintentional. On the second strike, the post is deleted. And on the third strike, you’re banned from the group.
- Promotion is allowed. But before promoting, you’re required to formally introduce yourself.
And that’s about it.
Wondering where else to promote your HSP products and/or services? If you’re on Facebook, this group is for you.
Services for Highly Sensitive People is a public group providing a space for people to offer their services tailored to Highly Sensitive persons. And as for an interesting fact, the group is a child of the very first group we listed – Highly Sensitive People.
So if you’re a therapist, psychologist, life coach, inspirational speaker, or spiritual encourager, this Facebook group is for you.
We like how with Facebook groups for highly sensitive people, you don’t have to (or need to) figure out what’s going on. The purpose is right in the name. And that’s how it is with this group.
Natural Health for the Highly Sensitive Person is a group for high-sensing people who want to learn how natural health can unlock the power of their sensitivity.
And that’s how short and direct the description of this Facebook group is.

As for the group’s rules and guidelines, they are few and quite straightforward.

And that’s pretty much it.

In the End
None of our list of resources for highly sensitive people is ever finite. We keep adding to it whenever we come across something relatable and helpful. And that’s the case with this list of Facebook groups for highly sensitive people.
We’re already members of 4 of these 9 groups listed here. The other 5 we came across while doing research for this post. So if you have an additional group or know of one that should be part of this list, please mention it in the comments.
We’ll look into it, and add it to the list so other HSPs can find it.
