Support Groups

Lupus support group meetings are held monthly. They are led by a trained facilitator(s) and are free-of-charge to persons with lupus and their family, friends and/or caregivers. Share your concerns, fears, strengths and hopes in a confidential, caring, and non-threatening environment.

Note: The support group network is currently in transition. In addition to traditional support groups, we would like to explore other avenues--like moderated online groups and peer mentors--to support our community in Washington and Oregon. If you are interested in supporting others with lupus or learning more about potential programs, please reach out to the Pacific Northwest office by emailing infopnw@lupus.org or call 877.774.2992.  If you would like to start a support group in your area, please read the support group faciliator position description and support group philosophy at the bottom of this page. Then complete the facilitator application and email it to us. We look forward to connecting soon.
