Support Groups Now Available
Updated: Feb 17, 2022
The JCCS are excited to announce their support groups are now up and running. A really supportive and relaxed group, open to all patients that have been in intensive care. No matter where it was or how long ago.
Although information about intensive care and the recovery journey is a great help, one of the biggest issues faced in recovery is the sense of isolation from anyone who actually understands what survivors have been through, and this isolation just makes recovery harder. Being able to talk with other people who've had similar experiences can go a long way to help survivors come to terms with their own experiences and, in time, even provide support to others and turn negative healthcare experience into a positive.
At our support groups all ICU survivors are welcome. We invite guest speakers to talk and the opportunity for people to meet others and have time to talk about their own experiences should they wish. We arrange specialist group physiotherapy sessions, mindfulness training and facilitated group psychological support.
