All over the world, restless legs syndrome (RLS) support groups are bringing people together to share their experiences, coping strategies, and to build a community of care on which RLS patients and their families can depend.

The RLS Foundation currently has over 70 support groups and a network of remote support contacts throughout North America, or see our list of international RLS groups.
