Support Group Meetings
DUE TO LACK OF PARTICIPATION, OUR SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS WILL BE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Place: St. Boniface Hospital
Room: AG002 side 2 (Entrance under emergency doors, go down hallway past volunteer desk (on the left) turn to the left )
Time: 7:00pm. – 9:00pm.
Support groups offer a cozy, warm and safe environment. By virtue of their format and size, they encourage sharing of feelings, ideas, coping mechanisms and empathy from Lupus patients who can understand your concerns and problems. Much can be learned at a support group meeting. You can get feedback from those in similar situations, and how they handle their own situations. Attending a meeting allows you to realize that you are not alone. Feelings of isolation and apprehension can be alleviated through participation in-group where others understand. Attending a support group gives you the opportunity not only to get help from others, but to give help as well.
All members and the general public are welcome, but those affected by lupus are particularity urged to attend.
Meetings are held at the following locations:
South Central: Contact Sharon Tremeer 242-2208
Winnipeg: Contact the Lupus Line 942-6825
For more information about Lupus please contact your local office.
