Each support group is unique. If the first group you try is not a good fit for your needs, try another one. Before you attend the first meeting, you may want to talk with a member of your health care team or the support group leader to find out if the specific group is likely to be appropriate for your needs. If it is not, they may be able to suggest another group that will be.
A support group should allow you to:
- Share experiences with other survivors
- Learn new ways to handle difficult situations
- Talk about your reactions and feelings to changes in your life.
