The IBD Support Foundation, based in Los Angeles, California, focuses on providing comprehensive, patient-centered psychosocial care. Under the direction of Marci Reiss, LCSW, the Foundation strives to provide leading psychosocial support and education to patients with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and their families.
IBD impacts the whole family, not just the patient. At the IBD Support Foundation, we recognize the importance of strengthening the family unit while addressing the psychological, social, and emotional needs of each patient. This is done through various programs including individual and family counseling, hospital visitation programs, peer mentors, school advocacy, and psychoeducational support groups for IBD patients and their families.
