There are multiple ways to take care of our mental health outside of therapy. Joining a support group can be one such way that’s known to be immensely helpful. 🌼
To find support from a community.
It helps to know that you are not alone or isolated in your experience.
To learn from the experience of peers.
Exchanging coping skills and helpful responses with others with similar/relatable stories and lived experiences.
You feel intimidated to start therapy.
If professional support is inaccessible to you right now, support groups can help you feel supported till you are able to find a therapist.
Be there for others.
Learn to be a witness and confidante for others who may have similar stories or backgrounds.
Find contacts of trusted professionals.
The group and other participants can give you information about trusted therapists, lawyers, doctors etc. if needed.
Healing between sessions.
If you’re looking for community support between therapy sessions, support groups are extremely helpful.
Recognize how others define “growth”.
See how growth and coping looks different to everyone, and learn to recognize your personal form of healing. There’s no rush.
