The Hydrocephalus Association (HA) is here to help. We are eager to guide you to the support you need for your particular situation. Our staff shares knowledge that comes from personal experience with hydrocephalus and from talking with people who live with the condition. Expect a listening ear from staff and access to informed and current resources to help you understand and deal with the complexities of hydrocephalus.
It’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed when dealing with a chronic medical condition, and we want you to know there are resources available to you. In addition to educational resources and programs, we offer a toll-free helpline to provide support when you need it most. Through the helpline, we answer your questions and refer you to helpful educational resources and support programs.
