Benefits of Joining A Support Group

With an illness like Lung Disease, often a feeling of hopelessness and loss of control becomes the norm. With a support group, participants are able to regain that sense of control and exercise authority toward management of their situation.

Support groups can be instrumental in improving psychological motivation. By simply getting "out of the house" and joining with other people with an understanding of the problems being faced, a positive attitude can be nurtured and improved.

WHO CAN JOIN

Any individual that is lung affected can become a member. However, recognizing that it is not only the individual with the lung disease that needs support we encourage the caregivers or “care partners” and other family to join and attend the meetings. Learning and receiving support together helps to equalize the disease experience for all who are involved.
