WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN A
HEPATITIS C SUPPORT GROUP!
Did you know that joining a group can:
1. Instill a sense of hope and optimism
2. Help you recognize that others share similar concerns (You are not alone)
3. Provide reliable and current information
4. Provide socialization and positive role models
5. Allow for catharsis: expression and acceptance of feelings
6. Help you to accept responsibility for your own choices and behavior
7. Supply opportunities for problem solving
8. Give you a chance to help someone else
9. Can save your marriage/friendships by giving you someplace else to unload
A support group is not a gripe session, a gossip time or a pity party;
group therapy or a substitute for professional counseling;
or a solution to all the difficulties you are experiencing in your life.
