Support groups bring together people who are facing similar issues, to share experiences and advice and to exchange emotional support.
By joining a Vitiligo Support Group you will get to meet others with problems similar to your own. Many people find it comforting to simply be amongst others who understand the challenge and stress of having vitiligo. Sharing practical advice and tips and improving your own understanding of the condition can also provide a sense of empowerment and control, and there may also be an opportunity to find out about the latest treatment developments.
Currently Vitiligo Support Groups exist in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia. You can find the contact person for each group below.
If you would like to start up a group in your local area please contact the VAA for some assistance.
