Support groups

Having a sense of community and a support network are invaluable when facing challenging situations. Having access to a support group in your local area that understands the intricacies of HD can be a lifeline.

Huntingtons Queensland facilitates support group meetings throughout Queensland on a regular basis. These friendly meetings provide attendees with a safe space to share their story, and learn from others, while seeking support from our HD advisor team. Meetings are held at a variety of locations, and are welcome to everyone.

There are also a small number of support groups that are organised by volunteers, and we are grateful for their commitment to helping other local families impacted by HD.

If you are interested in attending a support group meeting, you can contact us at to request email invitations to upcoming meetings, or visit ‘Whats on’ for a full list of upcoming catch-ups throughout Queensland. RSVPs are essential.

The purpose of support groups:

•  Encouraging local connections;

•  Fostering peer-to-peer support;

•  Providing information and education;

•  Building resilience
