Self-Help Promotion Program organizes the 13th European Expert Meeting on Self-Help Support, in Greece. Our goal is to organize a meeting for self-help supporters with experience in the field and a general view of self-support in their countries. We hope that we will have the chance to exchange new ideas and experiences and to discuss about the future perspectives in the field of self-help support around Europe, in times of transition and changes. The meeting will take place in Chania, in the island of Creta, in Greece.

The Meeting’s general theme is: Self-Help Groups and Self – Help Support in transitional times in Europe: Challenges and perspectives for self-help groups and self-help supporters.

  2. Self-help support and the emerging citizens’ initiatives in the field of health: Boundaries and perspectives.
  3. Countries’ reports regarding the current situation in self-help groups and self-help support (e.g estimated number of self-help groups, national policies regarding self-help and self-help support etc).
