Dystonia groups providing support through meetings and

the internet in Australia 

 

Support groups help people with dystonia by giving comfort and encouragement and a greater understanding of their condition. They also provide a safe environment for sharing their experiences and concerns with other people with dystonia. The purpose of support groups is to assist each other, including friends and family, in discussing day to day issues and tips in managing these issues to enhance quality of life. They are not a substitute for medical or treatment advice given by the individual’s medical specialist but rather fill the gaps in learning how to cope with the condition.
