Do you feel a heaviness in your chest? A plum pit in the throat? Do you desire to speak whats deep inside you and just let it come out?
During the last 30 years, researchers have shown great interest in the phenomena of social support, particularly in the context of health. Current research is extending our understanding of social support’s influences on health. Many epidemiological studies have concentrated on further linking measures of social support to physical health outcomes. Recent findings often show a robust relationship in which social and emotional support from others can be protective for health.
When joining a support group, you may be uncomfortable at first when it comes time to discuss problems in front of strangers. However, the fact that others are facing the same type of situation may help you open up and discuss your feelings. In addition, everything that takes place within the support group is kept confidential. At Luib Heath Center, Empowerment Hour – Support Group Sessions are now available. While there may be fees at other Support Groups, ours will just be donation base. The importance for us is to create a connection, a tribe that can just allow for a safe space and no judgements.

At Luib Health Center, probably the biggest advantage of our support groups is helping a person realize that he or she is not alone — that there are other people who have the same problems. This is often a revelation and a huge relief to the person. There are several benefits of self-help and peer support groups as a way to ameliorate and control stress‐ related health conditions. Further benefits of participating in our support groups may also include:
• Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
• Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
• Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
• Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
• Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue
• Developing a clearer understanding of your self
