Peer Support Groups and socialisation can be an important contribution to achieving recovery.
Online support groups can help but they only go so far, they cannot give you a physical shoulder to cry on when needed or provide friends who can knock on your door when you just can’t face the world.
The first step is to find out if you have any support groups locally established already which you can join.
The best place to start to look for a support group is to check the phone directory, contact your local Mental Health Clinic, Hospital, or even your local Council.
If not, do you think you are up to starting a new Support Group or do you have a support person who may be interested in helping?
