What means selp-help?

Every person has their own strengths that they can activate themselves. If necessary, a self-help group and the Thuringian self-help counselling centres can help them.

Self-help groups are associations of people who are challenged physically, psychologically or socially in a similar way. Their activities are aimed at coping together and dealing with their individual life situation on their own responsibility.

Both those affected themselves and their relatives are addressed. By exchanging experiences with each other, by helping each other and in discussion groups, they strengthen each other's backs and can thus improve their personal circumstances.

Self-help groups offer support and comfort, but also impart knowledge on how to cope with illness and crises. They accompany necessary medical or therapeutic processes and are now accepted and valued at eye level by many professionals from the health and social sectors.
