Self-help contact point offers telephone consultation on 23 March

In times of the Corona pandemic, personal exchange is severely limited. In order to make this possible nevertheless, the self-help contact point of the district has started a telephone campaign where interested people can exchange information with self-help experts on a wide range of topics. For in this difficult and for many stressful time, contact with a self-help group can offer relief. The success of the first two telephone consultations on 23 and 26 February proved the organisers right and the offer will be continued on 23 March.

"Since groups unfortunately cannot meet at the moment, telephone or digital contact is an important support," says Heike Eschler from the self-help contact point of the district. "Especially in this special time with its high stresses, it is worthwhile to engage with the topic of group-based self-help and contact like-minded people."

On Tuesday, 23 March 2021, the following self-help groups from Waldeck-Frankenberg will therefore be available for telephone counselling between 4 and 6 pm:

  • Mrs. Gertrut Opper, "Women's self-help group after cancer, Bad Arolsen", telephone number 05691 3159,
  • Ms Hannelore Böttcher, ILCO self-help group for stoma and bowel cancer, telephone number 0561 526248 and
  • for information on self-help Ms Heike Eschler, Self-Help Contact Point, telephone number 05631 954-888.

With this telephone campaign, the self-help contact point of the district would like to promote active exchange - also in Corona times. Basically, it supports self-help groups in Waldeck-Frankenberg in finding rooms, organising expert lectures, applying for funding or creating print products. However, new foundations are also important, which are to be supported by the central contact point. The self-help contact point is networked with experts from the health system and has set itself the goal of promoting and anchoring the idea of self-help in the region in order to contribute to a self-help-friendly climate in the district.
