No one knows what you are going through like others with scleroderma. Our volunteer-led support groups enable individuals with scleroderma to meet and exchange information with others who face similar challenges. These groups provide a forum to share thoughts, feelings and concerns with others who understand the experience of living with scleroderma. Support group leaders train with a comprehensive program developed with our partners at SPIN (Scleroderma Patient-centered Network). The Michigan Chapter Support Groups also include educational components.
We are committed to keeping our community healthy and safe. All support groups will remain virtual. To access more information about any of our support groups, visit Find a Support Group and search based on your zip code and topics.
In addition to local support groups, the Michigan Chapter will have two topical support groups. The 20%: A Virtual Support Group for Males Living with Scleroderma will meet on April 27, May 25, June 22, July 27, August 24, September 28, October 26, November 16 and December 28. The other group, Parents of Children with Scleroderma, will meet on April 6, June 1, August 3, October 5 and December 7.
Please RSVP before attending a meeting to ensure there are no changes to the meeting schedule and to receive any virtual login information. Groups are free of charge and open to everyone.
