Being chronically ill can be extremely isolating. The Chronic Illness Alliance was created with that in mind. Anaheim Youtopia’s intention with the Alliance Mentoring Groups is to provide a safe space where our members can feel seen and heard for who they are, not who external forces wish them to be. We also offer resources, networking, and guidance.

The Breakdown

  • We support, empower, and offer resources to young Alliance members, ages 13 to 18, via telecommunication meetings.

  • Our goal is to support each others’ struggles and successes with an understanding ear.

  • We also like to encourage our chronically ill members to become active (if possible) in our other programs.

  • There is no discrimination tolerated, everyone living with a chronic illness is welcome to share and listen.

  • We invite professionals to speak during special meetings.
