Trichotillomania Support Groups

Trichotillomania Support UK is the international charitable organization for the support of people with trichotillomania. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to run or organise support groups, but we would love to hear from you if you know of any groups or services in your area. Please contact us and we will build up a resource on these pages of help available in the UK and beyond. We now have details of support groups running in Australia here.

There are 2 support groups in the UK that we are aware of, both run by the same people.

They are:
