YA with Narcolepsy

Description

This support group is for young adults, ages 17-21, with a diagnosis of narcolepsy, and focuses on relevant issues such as symptom management, school, work, relationships, exercise, health and diet. Attendees are welcome to bring their most pressing concerns to the group for peer-to-peer support and discussions guided by a young adult (mid 20's) facilitator with narcolepsy. Meetings are held each Tuesday online and require registration which is free of charge.
