The Invisible Disabilities® Association’s mission is to encourage, educate and connect people and organizations touched by illness, pain and disability around the globe. Launching in 2016, IDYP (Invisible Disabilities® Young Professionals) will help IDA fulfill their mission of Encouraging, Educating and Connecting.
IDYP will be both a place of encouragement and of mentoring for Young Professionals impacted by illness, pain and disability and for their friends, families, co-workers and beyond.
IDYP will help educate Young Professionals themselves on invisible disabilities as well as a place to create plans to educate other young professionals.
IDYP will provide Young Professionals touched by illness, pain and disability a place to meet others living with or as caregivers themselves and therefore hopefully not feel alone and isolated anymore. Connection takes place in many forms such as volunteering for IDA events, participating in online IDA social groups and local IDA meetup groups.
