What is a Support Group?
A support group is a group of individuals coming together who give and receive help, advice, friendship and emotional support while learning about problems that they encounter in their life. A support group includes education and methods for coping, and may be led by a therapist or a person of experience.
Why should I attend a Support Group?
- A support group gives you the opportunity to learn, give and receive encouragement from others who are going through the same experience
- A support group can help you learn about community resources and how to connect to those resources
- A support group can provide education and methods of coping
