What are they and how can they help?
Support Groups are made up of a group of people who share a common concern or issues and who choose to come together on a regular basis to discuss these problems and experiences. The types of issues can range from breast cancer survivors, mood disorders, addictions or family members of someone who has died. The members gain support, education and resources from each other and the professional leader, if there is one. This support can facilitate healing, understanding and growth and allow members to feel heard and less isolated in handling their problems and issues. Support groups maintain interpersonal contact among their members in a variety of ways. Most groups meet in person in group sizes that allow conversational interaction. There are also on-line support groups which have been helpful to many people.
Professionally operated support groups are facilitated by a professional who does not share the problem of the members, such as a social worker, a psychologist, or a member of the clergy. The facilitator controls discussions and provides other managerial services. Such professionally operated groups are more often found in institutional settings, including hospitals, drug-treatment centers and correctional facilities. These types of support group may run for a specified period of time, and an attendance fee is sometimes charged.
