A self-help support group is comprised of individuals experiencing a common problem or life situation who gather together on a regular basis to share their experiences, hopes and strengths to help each other overcome or cope with their problem. Mutual help – members helping members – is the core strategy. These groups are voluntary and generally free, although they may “pass the hat” to cover their operating expenses. Self-help support groups are not professionally-run therapy groups, but can be a beneficial supplement to professional services.
