This website was created as part of the support group previously named the Australian Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Association and other associated support groups. Started with two friends who bonded by running our sister group Chiari and Syringomyelia Australia and both discovered they had Ehlers-Danlos. The Australian Ehlers-Danlos support group was started in 2013 to offer support to people with Ehlers-Danlos specifically.
With over 4000 members in the support group, it is the biggest online Australian support group for Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and growing daily. We also run a public awareness page (feed on the left) where we post information from sources all over. This is where we have a link to "Visit Group" where you can access our private support group for those diagnosed with any type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome or Hypermobile Syndrome Disorder.
