Email:  [email protected]
Morena is happy to answer any questions about the group and provide a listening ear at a time arranged by email. Please be aware that any questions Morena is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.
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.

Morena's link with Alopecia

Hi, I'm Morena and I've had Alopecia Universalis for 25+ years. I wore wigs most of my life and it's only during lockdown that I started embracing not wearing wigs as much and getting more comfortable with being out (or on social media) without it, and in the last couple of years even going out with a bald head! It's taken many, many years, but accepting Alopecia has only happened thanks to being around others with Alopecia, listening to their stories and getting inspired by them.

Alopecia can be a lonely place. We often feel 1 in a million, but thanks to Alopecia UK, our heart becomes much lighter when we discover we're not on our own. Just being near another person with Alopecia, can help us so much on our journey. Then once you start helping others, it goes tenfold: offering our support, experience or advice helps us as well as helping others. 

This is my experience in the last 15 years attending Alopecia UK meetings and for a while now, I have been wanting to help others in general, but I feel this is the best way to do it.
