About LUpus Patients Understanding and Support

Lupus Patients Understanding & Support (LUPUS) is a non-profit organisation for patients-affected-by-systemic lupus erythematosus, lupus variant conditions and the antiphospholipid antibody (Hughes) Syndrome. Our organisation was founded in 2000 with the intention of providing free information and free online psychological support.

Our organisation is unique in that it has its own in-house counsellor and psychotherapist. Lupus Patients Understanding & Support (LUPUS) has two further websites. Our information website can be seen here: http://www.lupus-support.org.uk while our online psychological support at the LUpus Message Board is here: http://www.lupus-support.org and registration is free. Come and Join Us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SUPPORT4LUPUS
