What is a self help group?
Self help groups are support groups that offer and provide mutual support or mutual aid. People often gain huge benefits from talking to others who have a shared experience, whether it be a diagnosis of a long term condition or having faced a similar life experience such as loss, recovery or survival.

On the day, you can expect to:
 Find out more about Self Help and the support available for groups,
 Experience a varied programme of speakers and workshops; including taster sessions of Lifetimes Self Help training workshops and the premier of the Self Help Wandsworth short film
 Learn from successful Self Help groups about the benefits of Self Help and how it has impacted their physical and mental heath
 Meet other people with the same long term condition to discuss forming new groups with the support of Lifetimes’ Self Help Wandsworth programme advisors.
 Browse the information marketplace to find resources and ask questions about Self Help and a variety of long term conditions.
