On-Line Support Options

Since we are not allowed to meet in person, here are some Options to Help You Maintain Support During our National Health Emergency

We are passing along this information so that you know there is support out there for those who are willing to participate in an on line support group.

When this National Health Emergency ends, the
Midwest Narcolepsy Support Group
will resume our regular "Face to Face" meetings.

Hang in there


·         Here’s the information from Narcolepsy Network
Join our virtual support group!

Since we are not allowed to meet in person, we wanted to find a way to still "meet" as a support group. Everyone is welcome!

Thursday, March 26
at 8:30pm EST, 7:30pm CST, 6:30pm MST or 5:30pm PST.

We will be using the video conferencing site, Zoom. If you intend to join us, please sign up for a free Zoom account here.
You will then download the Zoom app on your computer or cell phone. Please email with any questions or concerns. 

There will also be a call-in number, if you choose not to join via video.

Since we obviously missed getting this information out until AFTER the event had occurred, here is the website for the 
Narcolepsy Network
There are many tabs for a variety of information. 
I believe I saw one for "Online Support"

Every week, WUN hosts FREE support group meetings. Currently we are offering two weekly meetings:
