Accessing Support Makes a Difference

"Regardless of the type of support group, participants report many of the same perceived benefits from participation:

  • Fostering hope;

  • Learning about the issue that brings them to the support group;

  • Learning coping strategies;

  • Overcoming isolation;

  • Building social and support networks;

  • Learning from successful role models;

  • Feeling more in control over the situation;

  • Overcoming stigma;

  • Learning about the services available and being able to advocate more effectively."

We welcome groups focused on caregivers/parents, self-advocates, siblings, or specialized topics that would be meaningful to our community.

 

We have tools you can use to help create your group online, access Zoom services, and advertise to the global FASD community.
