    Self help groups are also called support groups. They consist of people who are suffering from the same condition or situation working together for mutual assistance. Group therapy commonly takes place under the leadership of a psychiatrist, but self help groups often work independently. In most cases, they are recommended as an adjunct to counseling, not a substitute. Some groups are also designed, rather than to address a specific problem, to improve self esteem and develop the mind. Most consist of people recovering from a mental health problem or an addiction. Alcoholics in particular benefit from self help groups. Programs also exist for individuals in drug rehabilitation and for those with emotional disorder. In addition to treating problems of the mind, self help groups may exist to provide counseling and support for life problems. Divorce groups are common, as are bereavement groups. Grief is a problem that often benefits from group support. In addition, groups exist for victims and survivors of diseases, especially cancer. Many groups are gender specific, given the different problems faced by men and women. Survivors of sexual abuse in particular often prefer same sex environments. Depression and anxiety support groups are also common. Support groups provide a caring environment. They help their members develop coping and empowerment techniques. They are sometimes formal, attached to hospitals and clinics, or informal. In many cases, they are entirely organized by their members. They are an important part of preserving and improving the mental health of individuals in difficult situations. In addition, they are proven to be useful in treating addiction.
