Traduction en anglais : Public health policy ranking and possible help to be rendered to self-help groups.
Self-help groups strengthen an individual's sense of autonomy and self-determination, and help to recover from diseases and other health-related problems.
Participants mutually support each other within the group to promote a healthier approach to socio-psychological issues ; they also conduct activities outside the group, especially counselling services for peers dealing with similar problems.
In recent years, the number of groups throughout Germany rosen to approx. 60.000.
The groups are mainly supported by self-help clearinghouses which have sprung up in many regions of western and eastern Germany over the last few years.
This paper provides an overview of the development of self-help groups as well as the current state of support and funding in this area.
Furthermore, it describes in detail the work performed by clearinghouses and the possibilities for cooperation with these new « liaison institutions ».
