General Mental Health Wellness & Recovery Group
A support group is defined as a group of people with common experiences and concerns who provide emotional and moral support for one another.
Some local support groups are associated with national organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. Others are sponsored by local organizations, such as Chesapeake Voyagers and Talbot Hospice. Some groups are led by a professional leader and some by members of the group. Some groups provide support for individuals coping with similar problems of their own; others are support groups for family members seeking help in addressing the problems of family members.
