How to attend a support group… Just show up!
Is there a facilitator?
Self-helping groups are run by peers. The person leading the meeting that day will usually read some material explaining how the meeting works. Some of the materials can be read by other members of the group. In most meetings everyone then gets a chance to share about how they’re dealing with the issue.
How much does it cost?
A basket will be passed to collect your donation. SHARE! has a suggested donation of $2 to $5 per person per meeting, however, no one is turned away for lack of funds.
How long are the meetings?
Meetings are usually one and half hours long.
How do I know if the meeting is right for me?
We suggest you attend a group at least six times before you decide whether it’s helping you or not.
