Talking alone does not help.
But together it does!
Are you tired of blaming your problems on yourself? Then find others who feel the same way! There are self-help groups for all sorts of topics.
Self-help is effective.
Prejudice vs reality
Self-help groups are self-organized, non-commercial, at eye level, without professional guidance, confidential and above all: effective.
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.
