Peer Support Groups (In Person)
WHAT ARE PEER SUPPORT GROUPS?
Support groups - also often referred to as self-help groups - are groups of people who gather to share common issues and experiences associated with a particular problem, condition, illness, or personal circumstance. In a support group, people are able to talk with other folks who are like themselves - people who truly understand what they're going through and can share the type of practical insights that can only come from firsthand experience.
WHO MIGHT YOU FIND AT A NV CHAPTER PEER SUPPORT GROUP?

HOW DOES A NV CHAPTER PEER SUPPORT GROUP WORK?
They will be facilitated by a staff member or trained volunteer.
As people arrive, we may break into smaller groups to ensure everyone has a chance to talk. We do agree as a group to follow guidelines to ensure a safe, productive, and confidential experience. Children and youth that attend will have their own group space.
