Support Groups in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin

Support Group

Support groups provide a forum to share thoughts, concerns, information and meet others who understand the experience of living with scleroderma. Find a support group in your area or connect with others on our online support community, Inspire.

Note: Support group meeting schedules are subject to change and all groups are currently meeting electronically to minimize any potential for the spread of COVID-19. Please RSVP before attending a meeting to ensure no change has been made to the meeting schedule and to get any needed online login information. Groups are free of charge and open to everyone.
