Find a Support Group

There are hundreds of support groups for people with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis throughout the country. Each year, 38 local chapters hold more than 200 support groups, where patients and family members can connect to others living with these diseases.

Crohn’s and colitis support group meetings are often intimate gatherings where patients and their loved ones can share their stories, seek emotional support, find answers to their questions, and connect with a community who share their challenges.

In addition to these focused sessions, support groups often organize informal, social events like picnics and luncheons, community volunteer days, informational workshops, family outings, and attend gala events.
