Vancouver Alopecia Areata Support Group

Hello Vancouverites! Connecting is one of the best ways to feel happier and become more informed! Come as you are, whether you are shy or outgoing. This is a genuine and fun group where all of us - new to alopecia or experienced, hair-wearer or au natural, seeking treatment or not - all come together and be supportive, informative, and positive for one another. Come to our monthly meetups, or start by joining this group to be posted of upcoming meetups!

If you want to talk to someone on the phone, posting on the wall here is a great way to start too!


If your kid /teen has alopecia, please contact us and we'll put you in touch with other parents! It'll be, I believe, quite awesome for your child :)

Hey D and All! I've been trying to sync up with Kyla who does henna (on the head) but she just let me know that she'll probably arrive in August instead. 

So let's set up a date without her this time! I think Mo or Cat are up for hosting?

Hey everybody.  It's been so long since I've been up to visit.  Do you have a date for the next meet-up?

HI Ashlee! Sounds great - I love yoga! Let us know when you have arrived!!

Hi everyone, I'm based in the Okanagan but I will be moving to Vancouver in the spring. I'll be up for some Canada day celebrations though and I would love to hear what you guys are up to that day. I should be celebrating the grand opening of the hot box yoga studio near ubc and if any of you are interested, you should come by for some yoga fun!! Hopefully I can meet some of you there!!

Hi All!  So pleased to join your group today.  I am from Seattle area in the US but had the wonderful opportunity to visit your group this early June!  You are an amazing and welcoming group of women and I hope to visit again soon!
