Support Groups

People dealing with a medical condition or life crisis might feel like they are suffering alone. As support groups expand on the Internet, individuals have many more options. The Web connects individuals facing similar situations around the globe.

With the plethora of support groups available, it is important to select one carefully. Some are started by caring individuals and others are hosted by recognized national organizations. Look for the credentials of the person monitoring or facilitating the group. A professional or highly skilled layperson can screen out problems and refer those who may need crisis intervention or therapy.

Here are a few sites to get you started:

  • SupportPath.com
    Allows people with medical conditions and personal problems to share their experiences on bulletin boards and chat rooms. The site provides links to hundreds of online support groups.




  • HealingWell.com Communities
    A resource for patients, caregivers and family coping with diseases, disorders or chronic illnesses. It offers informative articles, chat rooms and message boards.

  • Mental Health and Psychology Resources
    A directory of support groups for people suffering from depression, alcoholism and mental health problems.

  • The National Organization for Rare Disorders
    A coalition of more than 140 health organizations serving people with rare disorders and disabilities.

If you cannot find a group that fits your needs, the Self-help Sourcebook offers advice on starting your own online support group.
