Lists of Sample Support Groups BY TYPE


On the sidebar are listings of sample support groups for just some of the specific issues that groups address, and the populations that groups serve. Click on the title to view or print out. Ways in which these mostly 2-page handouts might be used:


ü  Provided to anyone with a special interest in any of these types of groups.


ü  Professionals, who specialize in working with such issues or particular populations, can print them out for their own reference, share them with colleagues, provide them to clients, post pr leave them in their waiting room area, distribute at staff meetings, in continuing education training, or at presentations.


ü  Self-Help groups can have them available at group meetings in the event someone is seeking a related, but slightly different support group. Or use copies in their own outreach to professionals or in their communities, by highlighting their particular group before distributing.  



Please note: By their nature, the support groups listed in these handouts are sometimes subject to frequent change. While these sample listings will be updated, one can always call our Clearinghouse’s toll-free helpline for the most up-to-date group information at 1-800-367-6274.
