I AM ALS Support Groups
I AM ALS offers weekly virtual support groups for people who are living with and impacted by ALS. Each group provides a space for people to connect with others who can relate to what they’re going through, and receive emotional support.
For people living with ALS:
Every Tuesday from 12-1 p.m. CST. This group supports people as they navigate the physical, emotional, and mental challenges that often accompany living with ALS.
For caregivers and loved ones:
First Wednesday of every month from 12-1 p.m. CST: People who have lost a loved one to ALS. This group supports people as they process grief and other emotions related to losing someone you love.
Second Wednesday of every month from 12-1 p.m. CST: People who are current primary caregivers to a loved one with ALS. This group supports people as they cope with the concerns, challenges, and emotions that often accompany navigating care for someone with ALS.
Third Wednesday of every month from 12-1 p.m. CST: People who are loved ones of someone living with ALS. This group supports people as they process their emotions related to a loved one living with ALS.
These groups reduce feelings of isolation and provide participants the space to talk openly about their experiences and feelings. Groups take place virtually through Zoom, which includes a type-in-chat feature. Participants can join by phone, a computer, or tablet with a steady internet connection.
