Support Groups

Lupus support groups are designed to provide a confidential, caring, non-threatening environment where people can share their concerns, fears, strengths, and hopes. They are not designed to provide professional therapy. The purpose of the Group is to provide information, education and awareness, and support.

The following is a list of the Foundation's Support Groups in California. We advise that you call or email the facilitator ahead of time to be certain that there has been no change in date or time.
