International WED/RLS groups  |  Support group meetings

Across the U.S. and Canada, support groups bring people together to share their feelings about living with WED/RLS, discuss ways to communicate with their families, friends and healthcare providers, and learn about the latest treatments.

If there isn't a support group in your area, you can check to see if there is a contact nearby. Contacts are individuals who have volunteered to offer support by phone or email to people in their area who are looking for WED/RLS information, resources and support. They do not offer meetings but can assist in finding help where you live.

There are WED/RLS patient groups all over the world. See our list of international WED/RLS groups.
