Peer Support

Are you feeling overwhelmed after a blood clot diagnosis?

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a blood clot or blood clotting disorder, you might feel like there is no one to talk to about your diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, or about what you’re experiencing, physically and emotionally.

A blood clot diagnosis can be overwhelming and scary, and it can lead to a lot of unanswered questions. Building a helpful support team, which should include trusted medical professionals, is a crucial part of your recovery. You should also take time to talk to people who share your experience firsthand.

Join NBCA’s Stop the Clot® Online Support Community and connect with your peers.

The National Blood Clot Alliance manages an online, peer-to-peer support community, powered by Inspire, that provides a safe and supportive space where people affected by blood clots and clotting disorders can gather to share information and interact with others who share their same experience. Perhaps, most importantly, our Stop the Clot® support community is a place where you can both inspire and be inspired.
