Support group leaders, Sarah, Stephanie, and Elaine from the Metro Vancouver Anaphylaxis Group

Support groups provide a warm, caring environment for you to share your concerns. You’ll get help in dealing with the day-to-day stress of being at risk for anaphylaxis, or having a child who is at risk.

Plus, you will keep updated on any new developments. It can be helpful to talk with others who understand what you’re going through. Below you will find the support group meetings happening this month. You can also read a support group profile about the leaders from the Metro Vancouver Anaphylaxis Group.
