Parent Support Groups

| Jan 1, 1999

Both the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and American Diabetes Association have regional offices in every state that keep an updated list of all support groups in their particular geographic areas. You can call either organization for the office nearest you that offers support groups specifically for parents of children with diabetes. Many regional affiliates also keep a referral list of professional counselors familiar with diabetes and family issues. Both organizations also have excellent Web sites.
