Support Groups: In-person and Online

Support Groups meet in person in counties across Florida and in our online community, Lupus Link Up.

People with lupus often feel alone with their disease and the everyday struggles that the disease brings to their lives, especially during times when the disease is active. LFA support groups provide a warm and caring environment where people with lupus, their family members, caregivers and loved ones can share their experiences, methods of coping and insights into living with this chronic illness. Knowing that others share this journey offers comfort and reassurance. Our support groups encourage and accept people as they are and provide a comfortable learning environment to help attendees develop the best coping strategies to reduce stress that often accompanies living with lupus.

Support group facilitator’s are certified and have been through LFA training and also have their own experiences with lupus. Click here to read about our facilitator’s (link to facilitator’s bios).
