Living with Lyme Disease, tick-borne illnesses, and other kinds of chronic illness can be a hard and lonely experience.
Our Support Groups offer a confidential space to connect and share.
All support groups are currently held on Zoom due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. In-person groups will be held at the Center’s office space once it is safe to do so.
Before you attend your first meeting, please read over the Support Group Agreements here.
