Second Thursday & Fourth Wednesday of each month

In-Person Support Groups

People with lupus often feel alone with their disease and the everyday struggles that the disease brings to their lives. Heartland Chapter 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 in-person support groups encourage and accept people where they are in their journey and provide a comfortable learning environment to help attendees develop the best strategies to reduce stress that often accompanies living with lupus.

If this is your first time attending our support group, please contact us first to confirm your attendance 314-644-2222 or 800-958-7876.

In case of inclement weather, always check before attending a support group by calling 314-644-2222 or 800-958-7876 or check our Facebook Page
