This video is about peer support groups for teenagers with chronic illness and chronic conditions. Parents and teenagers say it helps to see other people’s challenges, and how they deal with them. Online communities can help teenagers connect with others who are going through the same experiences. There are also groups that organise outings, camps and other activities.
