Connecting People to Services

Support/ Self Help Groups

Support groups are often led by a mental health provider or someone with other expertise in the area.  The group focus is on a particular topic so that all the participants have that interest in common.  Most professionally led groups have a fee per session – although some are free. Some health insurance plans will cover the cost of professionally led groups.

Self Help Groups are primarily led by individuals who have experienced the problem first hand and has some experience in the resources and needs of people with this problem.  These groups are most often free to participants.
