The ACA online support group is a real-time, professionally facilitated group that is conducted via the internet just for amputees. It is a safe, confidential forum for amputees to share thoughts, feelings, wisdom, fears and triumphs with each other. Support, information and education from another amputee can be invaluable whether you are a new amputee or a seasoned veteran. You can take advantage of this group from the comfort of your own home. You don't have to worry about accessibility or transportation issues.
