Irritable Bowel Syndrome Support Group Meetups

Posted Image

An IBS Support Group Meetup is an informal or formal gathering to help people:

- Find others in their area who share their interests
- Learn, teach, and share things
- Make friends and have fun
- Rise up, stand up, unite, and make a difference
- Be a part of something bigger; both locally and globally

Many of us go about our daily lives not knowing what is going on in our area or the people who live around us. Meetups dispel that isolation by bringing people together online and, more importantly, in the real world. That real world interaction/connection strengthens communities.

When a Meetup is cohesive, compelling, and effective, it ceases to be a collection of members and becomes a whole until itself. That entity, that Meetup, enriches the community in which it exists.

The facilitator of a Meetup is not a professional such as a psychologist, social worker, or a physician but a person who also suffers from IBS. Meetup's are based on the idea that talking about our problems improves our health and quality of life.

We list the current Support Group Meetups on our links page.
