Strong together.

Helping people help themselves.

In community self-help, people meet in groups to tackle their problems together. These people have the same issues that bother them. These can be physical or mental illnesses, as well as the same fears, worries or needs.

In a confidential environment, they can talk openly about themselves and find out how others are dealing with the challenge. Understanding others, learning from each other and finding ways to achieve positive change is the core of community self-help in the form of a self-help group.
