Connecting with others with achalasia and talking in small groups, where everyone knows about the condition and the issues involved, can give a range of ideas about how to manage your condition. As achalasia affects people differently this can be useful in providing suggestions which are working for others and that you may want to try.
One of the best ways we have found to support people living with achalasia is through our regular, informal group meetings where you can talk to others with the same condition. These are held on the 2nd Sunday of each month online on Zoom, so anyone with achalasia can attend wherever they live.
In addition to our monthly meetings, we hold an online group for parents of children with achalasia which meets about every six weeks. Parents provide support for each other as well as information.
There is also an 18-35 group which meets occasionally on demand.
If you would like to attend any of the above group meetings, please see details and links to register further down this page.
