We’re all in the same tub! Now what?

When doctors run out of time to answer all your questions about viral hepatitis, when some things are just too embarrassing to talk to your friends about, when your family just doesn’t understand what’s wrong, or when you wake up in the middle of the night with an urgent question, who do you turn to?  Peer support!

Sometimes we don’t have the perfect answer, but you know other HCV+ or HBV+ people care and understand, and will do their best to set you in the right direction. Information available below on LOCAL SUPPORT GROUPS, PHONE and EMAIL SUPPORT, and ONLINE SUPPORT
