Support groups

Support groups provide a warm, caring environment for you to share your concerns.

Close up top view of young people putting their hands together. Friends with stack of hands showing unity.

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 up to date on any new developments. It can be helpful to talk with others who understand what you’re going through.

If there is not already a group in your area, we can help you start one. Our information package has all of the material you need to get started. We will also put you in touch with other support group leaders who can share their experiences with you.

In setting up a support group, you will benefit by:

  • Increasing your knowledge about anaphylaxis
  • Connecting with other people who live with life-threatening allergies
  • Enhancing your coping skills
  • Helping others who are at risk for anaphylaxis and providing guidance to newly diagnosed families

For more information about support groups, or to receive a position description please contact Tammy White, Office Manager at 1 866 785-5660 or use our contact us form.
