The Invisible Disabilities Support Group is not meeting at this time. If you wish to be put on a waiting list, email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Invisible Disabilities Support Group caters to individuals with invisible disabilities. Invisible disabilities encompass experiences such as debilitating pain, fatigue, dizziness, chronic medical conditions, cognitive dysfunctions, brain injuries, learning differences, mental health disorders, and hearing, speech, and vision impairments. The purpose of these meetings is to help people become more comfortable with their disability in an individual level as well as on a larger scope.
It can be difficult to navigate a world designed for individuals who do not experience disability, especially when there is a lack of acceptance or understanding surrounding disability. Receiving accommodations and other supports can be further complicated when a person’s disability is not visible to others. This group will work through ways in which people with invisible disabilities can become comfortable within themselves and in relation to others, and how their needs can be met in both contexts.
