Connecting to Help One Another
And suddenly, like light in darkness, the real truth broke in upon me; the simple fact of Man, which I had forgotten, which had lain deep buried and out of sight; the idea of community, of unity. – Ernst Toller
A Health/Wellness Network that Grows with the Strength of all individuals within the group.
- Experiences are shared, knowledge is pooled, options are multiplied, hopes are reinforced and efforts are joined as members strive to help one another.
- A dynamic process exists within Groups – its people helping one another and helping themselves in the process.
- Members share the same problem/experience, providing a powerful ‘you are not alone’ sense of understanding.
- Individuals can take responsibility, set goals and where appropriate, follow a specific professional model to reach their goals.
- Individuals can get ongoing support to continue reaching their goals.
The Group Help movement welcomes everyone. It includes individuals suffering from depression, recovering alcoholics, former drug addicts, victims of abuse, returning war veterans and people suffering from a number of psychical or mental challenges.
The term ‘group help movement’ actually refers to people who help themselves by getting support from ‘peers’, rather than by relying solely on ‘professionals’. Our peers have often been through – or are going through – similar experiences to ourselves. The process is complemented by specific help from professionals when appropriate or requested.
NexNeuro Care endorses patient empowerment including the idea that patients want to be in control of their healthcare, and that such control will yield benefits for patients. In addition, it is widely assumed that information empowers patients, and that informed and empowered patients take better care of their health. In this context, information technologies and particularly the Internet becomes a basic tool to implement patient empowerment policies.
NexNeuro Care Groups consist of patients, caregivers, professionals and those that just ‘care’.
Remember – at NexNeuro Care, you are “not alone” . . .
“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
