It has come to my attention with patient referral issues that many of the support group listings on the "left" links are out of date.

Because a patient called one of these entities and sent an email with no return phone call or reply, this patient became extremely frustrated. Later I found out that this organization listed here as a support group no longer exists.


Click on YOUR state and verify that all information is correct for your organization. If you are not involved as a leader, please contact the individual who is responsible for updating this information and ask them to update. Even if there are NO changes, it would be nice if the date reflects that the information is current so we know.

My suggestion is that if you are not going to regularly update meeting dates, do not list dates, but rather include a general statement to call or email for support group meeting information.

Just my 2 cents. Thanks for listening!

Good advice Pineapple--

Also, if you have a new group, contact the moderators to add to the support group listings.

So many States have no groups listed!
