These groups comprise a small number of people who come together to share personal experiences and information in a safe, friendly and supportive environment.
Participants often form a bond based on the commonality of their day-to-day experiences. They learn from each other, experience relief, have fun and become inspired by each other’s journeys. Often there are people present who have recovered from their illness/disorder, who choose to attend to provide support to others.
Monthly meetings usually last between 1-2 hours and are led by a trained, volunteer facilitator. Support groups are free-of-charge.
