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 support groups can help teenagers connect with others who are going through the same experiences. There are also support groups that organise outings, camps and other activities.
