Support Groups

Tourette Syndrome is a very misunderstood and confusing disorder.  Often those affected and their family members need support to get through the tough times.  PA-TSA has a variety of supports to offer.  In addition to our Consultants, we have several local support groups and an online support group that you can reach out to for support or to help others! 

Online Support

Gain support and help by joining our private FB support group.  This group is different then our Public Facebook page.  In this group only the other members of the private group can see the questions and comments posted, making it a private spot for you to connect and gain knowledge and support from others who are going through similar situations.  Click this link to request to join the group: PA TS Alliance Support Group

Local Support Groups

The following individuals have agreed to hold support group meetings regarding Tourette Syndrome in their local areas.  All Support Group volunteers are well versed in TS, however their comments reflect their personal background with TS and do not necessarily reflect the views of PA-TSA.
