Support in your community

Scleroderma Quebec strongly believes in the merits of self-help groups. Support group meetings create an environment conducive to discussions by providing a meeting place where people affected by the disease can share personal experiences and learn how to improve their well-being.

Providing support to scleroderma patients and their families is the objective that we have set for ourselves in establishing various self-help groups. 

Our Health Promotion Agent, Valérie Maisonneuve, acts as a contact-person for all volunteer peer support group leaders.  

Kind-hearted people

Support groups, made up of dedicated community-based volunteer resource persons, allow scleroderma patients to break out of their isolation by answering their questions and providing easy access to accurate and understandable information about their disease and well-being, thus improving their quality of life.
