What's on: Support Groups
CCA support group meetings provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals impacted by IBD can express themselves openly and receive support and understanding from others with similar experiences. All members, including the facilitator are impacted by Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis (IBD) in some way.
Studies have found significant benefits to participants in patient support groups compared to non-participants including: a more positive outlook on life; greater satisfaction with their medical care; increased self-esteem and reduced feelings of shame and isolation.
