Self-help groups exist for many different topics and in various forms, all of which have one thing in common: people with the same problem, a common concern, or in a similar life situation come together to help each other. Affected individuals and their relatives experience help and solidarity in the self-help group, become active themselves, and take responsibility. Self-help can provide them with support and guidance for mental and physical illnesses, disabilities, or social issues. This makes self-help an important and recognized pillar of the German health and social care system.
Why does self-help actually work? The exchange with people who suffer from similar problems conveys a sense of being understood. People help each other with practical tips and strengthen their collective knowledge.
