Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People dealing with similar problems, as well as their friends and families, find support groups to be a valuable resource- place where they can share information, get confirmation that their feelings are “normal”, educate others or just let off steam.
Support groups are made up of people with common interests and experiences. People who have been through, or are going through, a similar circumstance can do more than sympathize with you-they can relate to what you are going through and keep you from feeling like you are alone.
