If there is no support group in my area. How do I start one?

The best way to start your own support groups is to send out flyers and mailings locally as well as work with Foundations who specialize in advocacy. There are some places that can help you post about your support group such as a physician’s office or hospital in your area, online web forums and on social media like Facebook and Twitter. To find a space that is free and available to host your support group you can contact a local hospital that will have space and not charge for the time, usually during the week. In addition, libraries and schools will also have a room that is available to host a support group without charge.
