Goals of the group

The goal of an alopecia support group is to provide emotional support and practical coping strategies, helping individuals affected by alopecia improve their self-esteem and build a supportive community.
It aims to empower members through shared experiences, professional guidance and advocacy efforts.

Who is the group for?

This group is designed for 18+ individuals dealing with alopecia (any subtype) at any stage of life or having any other autoimmune conditions or undergoing chemotherapy and experiencing temporary alopecia because of it.

What will we talk about?

• Discussing the emotional and psychological effects of hair loss, including feelings of grief, anxiety, and depression.
• Addressing how alopecia affects self-perception and body image.
• Sharing effective coping strategies and resilience-building techniques
• Navigating social situations, discussing ways to communicate about alopecia with friends, family, and colleagues.
• Discussing ways to handle public reactions, stares, and comments, and educating others about alopecia.
• Exploring practices for physical and emotional self-care, including skincare, nutrition, and mindfulness.
• Identifying and strengthening support networks
• Sharing of success stories and learning from individuals who have positively navigated life with alopecia.

  • I felt energized and relieved. My group helped me think differently—and clear some hurdles—that I had in my mind.


    35, Undergoing chemotherapy

  • Biggest benefit has been listening and learning about what other people are thinking and how they are coping.


    27, Have alopecia aerata

  • Absolutely serendipitous! It was probably one of the most helpful things for me in years. I always felt a deep sense of isolation before I chanced upon this.


    40, Hypothyroidism

What happens in a group session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Conversation. Your facilitator will guide the group in a free-flowing conversation—with the goal of sharing openly, talking honestly, and deep emotional connection.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am i going to get out of this?

Participants say that they feel heard, understood, more in control, and a feeling that you’ve got people rooting for you. By talking about your emotions and what's going on in your life, you'll realise that you're not alone and get ideas for how to improve your situation.
