How does peer support group work?
In a support group, you’ll find people with problems similar to yours. Members of a support group usually share their personal experiences and offer one another emotional comfort and moral support. They may also offer practical advice and tips to help you cope with your situation.
Benefits of participating in support groups may include:
- Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
- Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
- Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
- Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
- Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue
- Developing a clearer understanding of what to expect with your situation
- Getting practical advice or information about treatment options
Remember, that being a member of a support group is about connecting with others and sharing sensitive topics. It is okay to take things slowly at first and focus on becoming comfortable. Confidentiality is extremely important and should be respected at all times.
Knowing that we are not alone in our struggles can have a positive effect on our well-being and mental health. It takes courage to open up and share when we feel vulnerable, but the benefits are numerous.
