Support Resources

It’s easy to feel like you are alone in your fight against hepatitis C. You may feel uncomfortable talking about it with others. You may even feel that it is too personal to share or that others won’t understand. But the truth is that millions of people have hep C, and millions more of their friends and family members are also affected. Many people with hep C become counselors who can offer support when you are ready.

Whether you’ve just been diagnosed or have been living with hep C for a long time, there is no better time than right now to get support. Talking with your doctor, a social worker, or members of a support group may help you manage your condition. Opening up to your family or friends will allow them to provide support. Reach out when you’re ready and you may find that they were just waiting for you to ask.


Connect with Financial Assistance

Part of managing hepatitis C is making sure you can get the care that you need. For many people, this requires health insurance. If you don’t have health insurance, you should know that there are organizations that may be able to advise or help you, including state pharmaceutical assistance programs. Below is a list of sites that can help.

Where to Get Help for Hep C

Hepatitis C is a serious disease, and managing it may be difficult and stressful. Dealing with issues like housing, employment, alcohol or drug use, or mental health conditions can make managing hep C seem even more complicated. Getting these issues under control is important as you manage your hep C.

HOUSING

Not having a place to call your own can make it difficult to focus on managing your hep C. If you’re dealing with a housing crisis or know someone who is, please visit the US Department of Housing and Urban Development Web site.

EMPLOYMENT

Is your condition causing you trouble at work? Is it making it difficult to find a job? Work that you can depend on can be an important part of building a stable situation that can help make it easier to manage your hep C. Consider speaking to your employer about your condition and work requirements.

ADDICTION/SUBSTANCE ABUSE

If you are addicted to alcohol or drugs—or think you may be addicted—it’s important to get help, especially if you’re living with hep C. Alcohol can damage your liver. Some types of drug use may put you at risk for other infections. But even if you are addicted to alcohol or drugs, you may still be able to benefit from hep C treatment. Visit the Web sites below to learn more, and speak with your doctor honestly about your situation for help deciding what is right for you.

EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING

Living with chronic hep C can affect you emotionally. Concerns about your long-term health can feel overwhelming. Paying attention to your feelings and seeking support when you feel down can help you start to manage your emotional health. If you feel like you are often sad, angry, or anxious, or if you think you may be depressed, speak with your doctor about it right away. Remember, you have options.
