Support

Lupus Ontario is here to support you. We have on-line support groups and in person support groups. Join us and share strategies, suggestions, tips on self-management and learn about new research. Together we can make coping with the challenge of living with lupus, better.

You are invited to join any of the following groups, and see what a positive experience peer support can bring.  

Are you interested in starting a support group in your area? Please contact the Lupus Ontario office at 1-877-240-1099.
