Support Groups

Please click on the name of the group for more information. If there is not a group in your area, or if the groups listed are not at a convenient time, try our online support education group! Our online support group is a four-week program with weekly chat sessions that cover specific IBD-related topics and allows participants to share their views.

We are always looking for volunteer facilitators! We are in greatest need of facilitators in these areas:

  • Western Wisconsin
  • Northern Wisconsin
  • Central Wisconsin

Please contact Education Manager Kelly Fitzgerald if you're interested in starting an IBD support group.
