UPMC offers virtual support groups for those currently fighting or now recovering from critical illnesses, including COVID-19.
It is normal to feel worried, scared, depressed, or anxious when you are fighting or recovering from a critical illness, especially if you are isolated from your loved ones. We are here to help.
Join our support group to talk with others who are battling or recovering from critical illness.
You can participate from anywhere. Phone and video conferencing options are available.
The support group is open to all UPMC patients and their loved ones.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health requests that someone who has or had COVID-19 make a list of contacts and notify them to self-isolate. This list should include family, friends, doctor’s office staff, and anyone else you had contact with. This does not include hospital staff if you were in the hospital. Close contact is someone who was closer than 6 feet. This includes someone in contact with you for the two days before you had symptoms.Download the contact form (PDF)
