Transplant Teenz Support Community Policy

Transplant Teenz, a program of Brittany Speaks, Inc., offers a support community for minors who are pediatric transplant recipients. The purpose of this support group is to provide a safe space for these teens to process their feelings and experiences while receiving peer support. Many pediatric transplant recipients experience fear and worry about their health, their family's wellbeing, and their future. Communicating with others in similar situations can ease stress and provide comfort.

The online support groups are educational and supportive in nature, offering self-care strategies to assist participants during this difficult time. These groups will not provide psychological or healthcare advice for any particular individual or situation. If medical attention is required, participants should contact their transplant team. If they are in distress, they should contact their primary care provider. In case of an emergency, call 911.

The support group will not offer medical, mental health, or any other type of health service. No diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or advice regarding any medical or mental health condition or illness will be provided. The support group cannot be a substitute for or alternative to treatment when a medical or mental health condition is present. Participants are advised to seek professional services from licensed physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals as needed.
