In brief: Many Available

Each transplant center should have a specialized social worker or psychologist that works with transplant patients and families.
You should first ask them who would be best to respond to family related questions or counseling needs. If for some reason there are no local support staff, you should contact an alternative transplant center.

In brief: Many are available

Support from your family, friends, and community are essential to the success of transplantation.
Before transplant, stressors include waiting for a transplant, finding a potential living donor, and being on dialysis. After transplant, follow-up visits, change in lifestyle, medications, and other factors may cause anxiety. Visit http://www.Transplantliving.Org for support group information.
