Support Groups

NSCIA Support Groups provide peer to peer support for individuals, friends and family members. Our list of affiliated support groups is constantly growing so please check back if you can’t find one in your area.

About Support Groups
In a support group, members provide each other with various types of help for shared purposes. The help can take the form of providing and evaluating relevant information, relating personal experiences, listening to and accepting others’ experiences, educating and guiding, or for providing sympathetic understanding and establishing social networks. Support Groups may each have their own way of accomplishing their mission but all of them share the same goal of improving the lives of participants.
