Please get in touch with Michelle ahead of a meeting and let her know if you intend to go along.
"I really enjoy running my group and using my experience to help people cope with alopecia and stay positive."Need Advice or Support Outside of the Group Meetings?
The main role of support group leads is to facilitate, and answer questions about, the group meetings. Some may offer additional support and you can see what is on offer from Sue below:
- Michelle has her telephone number advertised and is happy to receive a telephone call and provide a listening ear
- Michelle is happy to receive support questions from those in her local area and will answer to the best of her ability based on her own knowledge and experiences. Please be aware that any questions Michelle is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.
Please note that all of our support group leads are volunteers and do this in their spare time. As such please allow up to a week for replies to emails. The majority of group leads are not trained health professionals and will be helping from the standpoint of being someone who is affected by alopecia themselves and wanting to reach out and help others.
You can always contact Alopecia UK head office
direct during office hours should you have any queries that need a more urgent response.
