NEW AND EXISTING SUPPORT GROUPS

A support system has many positive benefits, such as higher levels of well-being, better coping skills and a longer and healthier life. Social support can reduce depression and anxiety. Some people do best with a large support group, while others need a small support system. Giving and receiving support from others is a basic human need.The goal of social support is to decrease stress.

In a nutshell

We are the only body in our country that provides non-medical support for arthritis patients, their families and carers.

To do this we are involved in a wide range of education and support programmes, in providing access to information about  diseases, and by advocating the interests of people with arthritis in government, medical and media circles.
