Living with a chronic kidney condition can leave you feeling isolated. It can be hard to express how you feel to your family members, friends, and colleagues who don’t experience the disease-related challenges you do every day. 

Support groups for kidney disease, whether peer- or facilitator-led, provide an opportunity to connect with other kidney disease patients who understand what you’re going through.

Q- Why join a CKD support group?

Joining a support group will allow you to

  • Safely share your emotions
  • Hear first hand experiences of living with the disease and its treatments
  • Trade coping mechanisms
  • Receive encouragement
  • Feel connected, understood, and empowered
