The importance of support and self-help groups

Support and self-help groups offer members and their loved ones the opportunity to meet people who are going through a situation similar to theirs. These meetings allow participants to share their concerns, worries and questions. It is also a place where we exchange advice, tips and strategies to understand and overcome the difficulties encountered.
