Get support

CanLyme encourages patients to work with their healthcare providers when seeking diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. Patients may find online and in-person support groups helpful when seeking out local resources or to connect with others who may be experiencing similar challenges in dealing with these diseases. 

Although CanLyme does not run a patient support group, there are a number of independent associations and groups across the country.
