Schizophrenia and Day Time Networking

Not having a job presents an interesting and unforeseen challenge of what to do during the day and how to socialize with others. Many of us with schizophrenia like symptoms are asocial or antisocial, I am finding out that I am not. What is a good way to SAFELY meet others with similar mental illness online or in person? Keyword here is safe as I don’t want to meet trolls or worse. Age range and especially interests are important, although i think people of all ages are alright. Ideally I would like some friends to game with during the day and to chat with while others work the day away.
