Support groups

Many people say joining a support group can help build connections, ease stress and reduce feelings of isolation. You may also find it helpful to join online communities through social media, blogs/vlogs, forums and chat features. Some virtual support groups may offer webinars and interactive video conferences.

To decide if the support group is right for you, find out the purpose of the support group or online community. Ask about their mission and goals. Be aware that people may share their opinion’s and personal experiences in groups. You can learn helpful tips and strategies to navigate the system, but you should always do your own research to determine which services and supports are right for you.
