CONNECT WITH PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH

No one understands what you are going through better than someone who also lives with a voice disorder. Most people say, “I never heard someone who sounded like me until I went to a support group meeting”. A support group can provide a lifeline, information on doctors, experiences with treatments, tips to help you thrive and lifelong friendships. That’s why we believe so strongly in support groups. Whether you have SD or some other voice disorder, you will find strength in support. These are people living with a voice disorder who want to help.

Support can be found without even leaving your home. Virtual meetings are a great option and you are welcome to join regardless of the location.

FINDING SUPPORT IS JUST A CLICK AWAY!

Our support network includes local support groups, area contact leaders, and virtual meetings. Since the move to virtual meetings, many of our leaders have been serving more than just their local area, but rather serving as a point of contact for the state. So if there is not currently a leader in your immediate area, feel free to reach out to some in another location. And remember, you are always welcome to join us on our Zoom support calls. A calendar for both in-person and virtual meetings can be found here
