A new 12-week Facilitated Group Programme for CSF Leak patients in Scotland

*Please note that due to National Lottery Awards for All Scotland funding stipulations this support group is only available to patients resident in Scotland.

Being diagnosed with a CSF Leak can be frightening, demanding, stressful and lonely.

‘Stronger Together’ provides a supportive, confidential space to share experiences, the ups and downs, and to feel less on your own with some of the unique demands of your particular circumstances.

The sessions will be facilitated by Zubyda Azzam, a specialist counsellor from Rareminds, and offer practical and emotional support for your wellbeing alongside the opportunity to create trusted bonds with other group members.

The sessions will run weekly on a Tuesday from 7:30 to 8:45pm (Zoom)

The first session will be Tuesday 16th January 2024

There will be a maximum of 12 participants, on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Although we understand ‘life happens’, please be prepared to commit in principle to all 12 sessions in order to make the most of the experience.
