FASD Support Groups
The FASD Collaborative Project is proud to offer over 25 online support groups for birthmothers, birth families, self-advocates, and caregivers in the FASD community.
Support groups offered in The FASD Collaborative Project are run by FASD-informed professionals and volunteers from the FASD community and are all currently open for new members.
Please check out our offerings at:
"Regardless of the type of support group, participants report many of the same perceived benefits from participation:
Learning about the issue that brings them to the support group;
Learning coping strategies;
Building social and support networks;
Learning from successful role models;
Feeling more in control over the situation
Learning about the services available and being able to advocate more effectively."
