Often through social: workers, online communities or through office personnel. Support groups are everywhere and usually free. United Way in my area forms the connection hub to most, but County hotlines are very helpful. Some cities even have special phone lines for available services. San Diego has 211. Some psychologists form their own support groups out of existing patient pools. Be creative.
