Action 77

I join a social group or organization that gives my life purpose and helps me find meaning. I can benefit from their story-telling and find role models to emulate. I will participate in the social activity even though I may not feel like it at first. Social isolation and avoidance only make things worse. Social support increases my wellbeing and limits distress. Being connected makes it easier to obtain coping information, get practical help and gives me a sense of being understood and accepted. Being part of a group provides a sense of connectedness and collective efficacy to work together toward a specific goal.
