Resources to Help You Along The Way

The resources listed below are helpful when looking for answers. Although both NAAF and CAP are two of the most informative and helpful communities available, access to social networking sites like Alopecia World and Facebook pages that focus specifically on alopecia areata are gaining momentum as avenues for help.

These stories are very specific to each person who wrote them, and you will find the common thread is community. You don’t need to feel alone. We are in the age of information accessibility. Reach out to others who have alopecia. The support of friends and family are one thing, but finding a safety net made up of those who truly understand is extremely valuable.
