NEW! Ottawa Youth Support Group

Are you a teen with Tourette Syndrome (TS)? Looking for support and advice? Want to meet others like you? We want to hear from you!

We would like to invite all youths 12 years and up to join us for a support group meeting (only youths to attend this one, parents and adults will be in a separate room) on Tuesday, March 3 at the Royal Ottawa Hospital, 1145 Carling Avenue, room 1420 from 7:30 – 9:00pm.

Everyone will meet in room 1420 but then the two groups (youth and adults) will be split into separate rooms. Kevin Smith who is studying neuroscience will be hosting the Youth Support Group meeting. He has facilitated group meetings and he himself has Tourette Syndrome.

The intent of the Youth Support Group is to build a network of support; mention your positive experiences and challenges, and to share your special accomplishments.

Our support group meetings typically take place on the 2nd Tuesday of the month (Sept – June) EXCEPT for March because of March break. Therefore, our upcoming meeting is on Tuesday, March 3 at the Royal Ottawa Hospital, room 1420 from 7:30 – 9:00pm. Everyone is welcome!
