Support Meetings

Support group meetings allow people impacted by HD to avail of peer support and share information with others who may have a similar experience to you. You will have an opportunity to speak with people who understand your situation because of their own experience. Meeting with other HD families can be an effective way of sharing coping strategies and useful tips. They also offer an opportunity to build friendships with other carers. Family care givers are also encouraged to look after their own health and wellbeing.
