Monthly PH Community Meet-Ups
PHA Canada invites you to join the PH Community the last week of every month for a casual virtual drop-in meeting with PHriends, old and new. Meet-Ups are not support groups - they are open, virtual spaces where patients and caregivers can chat with others from the PH community. These sessions are not moderated.
Wednesday May 24
5PM PACIFIC TIME (8PM EASTERN)
Thursday May 25
10AM PACIFIC TIME (1PM EASTERN)
Note: You must register for each meet-up separately - we promise it will only take a moment!
Open to all PH patients and caregivers in Canada, including those post-transplant. PH Health Care Providers are also welcome!
PH Buddy Program
Life during a pandemic can be stressful, especially for people already concerned about their health or the health of a loved one. Staying connected to others in your community — even while practicing social/physical distancing — is an important part of staying well.
Could you use someone to talk to while “self-isolating” at home?
Do you want to help someone in the PH community feel less alone?
Sign up to become a “PH Buddy”. Buddies will help one another stay safe and socially connected during this uncertain time.
In-person Support Groups
If there is no in-person support group in your area but you would like to speak with someone directly, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 1-877-774-2226. We’d be happy to put you in direct contact with a community member or point you in the direction of additional support resources.
Online Support Groups
In Canada, where people are spread out and sometimes live in very remote areas, connecting with others affected by PH online can be helpful in acquiring knowledge about the illness and finding peer support. Here is a list of Canadian PH Facebook Groups:
