What is a Support Group/Psychoeducation Group/Skill Based Group?

 

A support/psychoeducation/skill based group is a safe place where people that share common struggles and/or issues come together to receive information, encouragement, and share about their experiences. Members participate through listening, sharing, and learning together. The support group facilitator will assist in creating a safe environment through sharing information and education, engaging the group in productive discussions, guiding the group to remain on topic, assisting the group in following guidelines, and identifying common themes for group members to explore. Through participating in these groups, members are able to offer support, encouragement, and comfort to the other group members, and receive the same in return. Joining and participating in a support group is an important way to connect with other people facing similar challenges or difficulties and develop ways to work through them.
