Self-help groups bring people together who share a common life experience for support, education, and mutual aid.
Benefits of participating in these programs:
- Learning new information and strategies for confronting problems
- Finding support from others
- The opportunity to help others
- Feeling empowered and more self-confident in coping with challenges.
Members of self-help groups share a belief that positive personal change happens through individual efforts with the support of others.
