Support Group Network

NAAF has support groups all over the world. Though they have different sizes, average age and group specific objectives, they share a common mission; to provide individuals with alopecia areata, their families and their friends a safe, comfortable and trusting environment in which to share their personal experiences with this challenging disease.

See International Support Groups here>>>

Please visit our Calendar also, to see if there are any support group meetings in your area. Many groups hold meetings that are NOT listed on our calendar so it is best to check with the support group leaders for meeting schedules.

 

There are lots of cities and towns across the country and around the world WITHOUT support groups. If you would like to learn more about what it means to be a telephone support contact or support group leader please email Laura Ralph or call her at 415-472-3780.
