Upopolis is a free, private online social support network available to youth 10-18 years with hospital experiences or chronic medical conditions. It provides youth living with a chronic medical condition access to peer support from other youth, access to a team of child life specialists seven days a week, and medical information created for youth and vetted from reliable sources.

In addition to supporting ill youth directly, they also have support programs for the SIBLINGS (aged 10-18) of youth living with a medical condition, for youth who are navigating GRIEF, and for youth of adult patients. Youth will have access to peer support, resources, activities shared by their child life team, and more.
