Diseases and Conditions Support Groups - Central East

Support groups are usually organized and managed by their members for peer to peer support. Members are commonly volunteers who have personal experience related to the groups focus.

Support group members provide each other with various types of assistance, typically nonprofessional, providing sympathetic understanding and establishing social networks.

Some support groups are accessible to anyone while others are formally controlled with admission requirements and membership fees.

These services serve all or part of Central East
