A diagnosis of cicatricial alopecia can be an emotional experience, causing a sense of loss, grief, depression, isolation, hopelessness, embarrassment, denial or anger. Many patients find comfort and emotional healing in support groups. For more information, please visit our Support Groups page. If these feelings become overwhelming and extreme, we suggest you contact your physician for a counseling referral.
