Self-help contact point offers telephone consultation hour 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. Because in this difficult and for many stressful time the contact to a self-help group can offer relief. The success of the first two telephone consultations on February 23 and 26 proved the organizers right, and the offer will now be continued on March 23.

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

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

  • Mrs. Gertrut Opper, "Women's Self-Help Group after Cancer, Bad Arolsen", telephone number 05691 3159,
  • Mrs. Hannelore Böttcher, ILCO self-help group for ostomy and colorectal cancer, telephone number 0561 526248 and
  • for information about 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 - even in Corona times. Basically, it supports self-help groups in Waldeck-Frankenberg in the search for rooms, the organization of lectures, the application for funding or the creation of 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 care system and has set itself the goal of promoting and anchoring the self-help idea in the region in order to contribute to a self-help-friendly climate in the district.
