Share and work though issues with a group of people that you can relate to
Support groups are made up of people who share a common issue and allow the discussion of problems
and solutions in a safe environment. A group member describes it this way: "In support groups, common
challenges and life events link members together. Members know what's going on with each other. The
main purpose of a support group is to share that experience and to work through it. Words that capture the
support group experience are empathy, understanding, sharing, encouragement, and healing."
