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

In addition, you are invited to join any of the following groups. Join now and see what a positive experience peer support can bring to the world
