What is a Lupus Support Group?

A lupus support group is an informal gathering of individuals with lupus, their families and friends. It is a place where persons with lupus can share their experiences and ask questions. Most discussions focus on the "how-to's" of living with a chronic illness.

A Support Group:

  • Fosters the sharing of feelings, hopes and concerns among people with lupus, family members and friends.
  • Promotes education about lupus
  • Provides a positive social experience for people who share a common illness.

It is a safe place for people to learn, share and help. Individual differences and confidentiality are respected.
