Monthly PH Community Meet-Ups
PHA Canada invites you to join the PH Community the last week of every month for a casual meet-up with PHriends, old and new. No agendas, no speakers. Just a chance to connect with your peers over Zoom of course!
There will be two meet-ups each month.
Register here for the Meet-Up on Wednesday, June 29, starting at 5 pm Pacific Time (8 pm Eastern)
Register here for the Meet-Up on Thursday, June 30, starting at 10 am Pacific Time (1 pm Eastern)
Note: You must register for each meet-up separately - we promise it will only take a moment!
Meet-ups are open to all PH patients and caregivers in Canada, including those post-transplant. PH Health Care Providers are also welcome!
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 email@example.com
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.
Telephone Support Groups
PHA Canada hosts a monthly telephone meeting for parents of children with PH on the last Wednesday of most months. The PH Parents Network is led by volunteer parents and is free to attend. For more information or to join the next call, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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:
