Connect with our local chapter:
The NYA works with young people who have been part of the youth community in the US to train them to become peer supports for other youth impacted by HD. Regional Leads have been trained by HDSA staff to work with other young people who might have similar experiences growing up in HD families. Regional Leads know the HDSA family of resources and can help direct youth towards those resources to help them get the support they need. Regional leads are also available as resources to chapters and affiliates to attend events like education days or Team Hope Walks to talk about the NYA and youth resources.
