Victoria Support Group
Support groups are a fantastic way to get in touch with other people who are living with Alopecia Areata, to ask questions and find new friends. Our Facebook groups are closed groups and you will be contacted by an administrator to ensure you are joining the correct state group and are part of the alopecia community.
AAAF runs a wide range of events, from Open Days and Trivia Nights, to pizza dinners and casual catch ups over coffee. These events all aim to provide a supportive atmosphere and chance to socialize with other people who have Alopecia Areata and their families. See the calendar below for our upcoming events.
How to find a dermatologist near you:
Visit the Australasian College of Dermatologists website to use their search tool to find a specialist near you.
