Support Groups

Here at Recovery Republic we run a range of support groups

support group consists of members who provide each other with various types of help, usually nonprofessional and nonmaterial, for a particular shared, usually burdensome, characteristic. Members with the same issues can come together for sharing coping strategies, to feel more empowered and for a sense of community. The help may take the form of providing and evaluating relevant information, relating personal experiences, listening to and accepting others’ experiences, providing sympathetic understanding and establishing social networks. A support group may also work to inform the public or engage in advocacy.

We have 2 types of support group on offer at Recovery Republic :

  1. Self-help support group is fully organized and managed by its members, who are commonly volunteers and have personal experience in the subject of the group’s focus. These groups may also be referred to as fellowshipspeer support groupslay organizationsmutual help groups, or mutual aid self-help groups.

These groups include

  • Heads Together (Severe and enduring mental Health Support group
  • Men’s Support Group
  1. Professionally operated support groups are facilitated by professionals who most often do not share the problem of the members, such as social workers, psychologists, or members of the clergy. The facilitator controls discussions and provides other managerial service.
  • Wednesday wellbeing activities
  • Team Tuesday Anxiety and Depression group (Rochdale and District MIND)
