    Support Group Leads are not professional counsellors but people who have personal experiences with alopecia and, along with members of the support group can help to give insight and advice on living and dealing with alopecia on a day to day basis. 
    Please note that our Support Group Leads are volunteers and do this in their spare time, as such please allow up to a week for replies to emails.
