Participating in a group with people that understand you and know what you are going through
is priceless. Support groups can be a lifesaver for many.
I personally attend an ADHD support group and an Alopecia Support group and highly recommend participating in a relevant support group that suits your needs.
At Oasis, our aim is to provide valuable resources and information to our community. We have compiled a list of local mutual aid support groups to facilitate access to support networks.
- It’s important to note that the inclusion of these groups on our website is purely for informational purposes.
- In no way are mutual aid groups affiliated with or endorse the Oasis Partnership.
- We want to emphasise that Oasis does not endorse, promote, or vouch for any specific methodology, ideology, or group ethos of the listed organisations. The decision to engage with any support group should be based on your own judgment and preferences.
- We encourage you to research and connect with these groups to find the one that aligns with your needs and values. Remember that mutual aid is a diverse field with various approaches, and what works best for one person may not be the same for another.
- By providing this information, we hope to empower individuals to make informed choices about the support networks they join.
- If you have any questions or concerns about the information presented on our website, or if any info is missing please feel free to contact us.
