Start a Support Group
Sandhaus

Peer support is vital to all Alphas and family members. You can share your experiences, learn from other Alphas and empower yourself to take charge of your health in a safe environment. Support groups have access to the full resources of the Alpha-1 Foundation and stand as one voice in the Alpha-1 Community. To find the closest support group to you click here.

If there is no Support Group in your local area, please consider starting a group and becoming a Support Group Leader. The role of a Support Group Leader is multifaceted. A Support Group Leader’s primary responsibility is to create a caring, supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere for Alphas to come together. The Leader, along with help from others in the group, will set dates for meetings, locate a place for meetings, and determine topics and/or speakers for meetings.

Support Group Leaders receive training and guidance by Foundation staff and are mentored by an experienced Support Group Leader. In addition, they receive a comprehensive Support Group Leader Training Manual and Resource Guide. Leaders are encouraged to participate in Foundation training opportunities through monthly telecalls, local Education Day venues and the annual National Conference.

Please contact Cathey Horsak Henderson, Director of Community Programs, at (877) 346-3212, or at chorsak@alpha1.org to learn how you can become a Support Group Leader.
