About Support Groups

Going along to a group for the first time can be nerve racking, especially if you’re not used to talking about your hair loss or have only recently admitted it to yourself. You may be able to arrange to meet one or two group members separately first. Alternatively please do not feel uncomfortable about bringing a member of your family or friend, this can be can be as many as you want. At the end of the day you are the person who matters and needs support, so you are comfortable and that is important to us.

Sometimes just being in the same room as people who share your problem can give you a boost, but if you really want to make the most of a support group, you’ll need to be proactive. Remember that the other members will just be ordinary people like you – it’s unlikely they are trained counsellors. If you think it might help you to discuss a particular topic, you should raise it yourself. Ask one or two members separately first if you’re not sure what will fit in with the usual way the group works.
