Self-help and mutual support

Self-help and support groups, online and face-to-face, can help you to manage your symptoms on your own.

With self-help resources, you can find workbooks that teach you skills and coping strategies.

You can also get referrals and information for where you need to go.

Sometimes chatting to someone else who is going through the same thing can help, too—that’s where support groups come in.

These links will take you to places where you can access self-help resources and support group services in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region.

What to expect for self-help resources

For online self-help resources, you'll work through some questions and receive information and feedback on skills that might help.

You might learn about new ways of coping, news ways of thinking or new things to try. Coming with an open mind is the way to go.


What to expect when you attend a support group

When you visit a support group, you'll meet people going through similar experiences to you.

People might be at all different stages and come from all walks of life, but talking through a shared experience can bring everyone together.

You don’t have to share anything you’re not comfortable sharing—you can say as little or as much as you like.
