For many problems of health care and coping with illness-related, disease-causing and stressful life situations, you can benefit as an affected person or relative from a self-help group. Together with other sufferers, you can exchange ideas about therapy options or receive tips for everyday life.
Anyone can start a support group. It does not require a legal form; it is enough to agree with other people on a topic and certain framework conditions such as place, time or duration.
Who should I contact?
Addresses and contact persons can usually be found on the websites of your district or city.
What else should I know?
Further information can be obtained from the Self-Help Office Lower Saxony of the Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft Selbsthilfegruppen e. V.
