Support groups are usually made up of individuals who are going through or have gone through similar experiences, sharing with each other in order to process and recover from difficulties. These experiences may include health conditions like cancer, depression, and substance abuse, or they may be emotional and related to life events, like a bereavement.
Support groups can be helpful and bridge the gap between medical treatment and the need to talk about what we’re going through. They are not substitutes for professional help but are often recommended by healthcare providers and generally regarded as beneficial by the medical community.
