A Support Group can be defined as a gathering of people with common experiences and concerns who meet together to provide emotional and moral support for one another. They encourage a sense of community, a source of  empathetic understanding and provide an avenue for establishing social networks. Meetings can take place in person, over the phone or online. Some groups are ongoing, while others have a predetermined start and end or total number of sessions for the group.
