Peer Support

Published on August 28, 2020

Support groups bring together people who share similar experiences and provide an opportunity for people to process their personal experiences and feelings, learn coping strategies or firsthand information about diseases or treatments, and improve the ability to cope with stressful situations, alleviate the effects of emotional distress and promote lifelong good mental health.  Participating in a group provides you with an opportunity to be with people who are likely to have a common purpose and likely to understand one another. Benefits of participating in a support group may include: Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged and reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue.
