What is a Support Group?
A PSP Society of Canada support group is a voluntary gathering of people who share common experiences, situations or problems related to living with a prime of life disease such as PSP, CBD and MSA. Group members offer each other emotional and practical support and reduce the sense of isolation that is associated with rare brain diseases.
Who are the participants?
•Those who have the disease themselves (they may be involved in treatment with a doctor and they may or may not be on medications. Others may be at the beginning of the process of getting help and may be in great need of support and information about the disease.
• Family members that care for someone with PSP or a related disease. Their loved one may be in a hospital, living at home, or in an alternative living arrangement.
• Typically, a group will have new people attending each meeting. It is not essential to attend a certain number of consecutive sessions. People come when they can, when they feel a need or interest, and when they are ready.
