PN-8050.3300In Person Support Groups Definition
Mutual support groups whose meetings take place in local community settings, usually on a weekly or monthly basis, enabling participants to have face-to-face contact with other people. In-person support groups generally have scheduled meeting times, closed membership and professional leadership; and may feature speakers and activities.
PN-8050.3400Internet Support Groups Definition
Mutual support groups that schedule virtual "meetings" via the Internet. Included are e-mail listserv groups (which distribute posted messages to participants via e-mail), bulletin/message boards (whose postings are restricted to people who register), newsgroups (whose postings are unrestricted and open) and chat groups (which permit real time discussion) that are devoted to providing support for participants around a particular issue. Internet support groups are generally available around the clock; and are convenient for people with limited mobility, serious health issues or transportation problems, who don't have time for face-to-face meetings, or who simply wish to maintain their privacy and remain anonymous. They may be the only option for individuals with rare disorders or other unusual problems who are unlikely to find enough people in their local area to form a support group. Internet support groups may be monitored by professionals, but most are not.
