At the IBD Support Foundation, our goal is to prevent IBD patients from ever feeling alone because of their disease. We know that illness can be isolating. People often don't understand what it is like to be a patient. We know that illness can be frightening and when we feel vulnerable, we need access to knowledgeable people who care. We know that illness impacts every relationship, with our families, with our friends, at work and at school. And we know that crises don't just occur during business hours, but often at night or on weekends or on holidays.

The IBD Support Foundation has been built by patients for patients, because it is patients who truly understand. We provide patients and their families access to high quality psychosocial support, mental and behavioral health services. For doctors, allied healthcare professionals, hospitals, and health systems, we offer training to improve the quality of the care they provide to patients and their families.
