We are evaluating a mentoring program to help children and teens live well with IBD, and we are comparing it to an educational program. This study will determine if the mentoring program is helpful, and help improve it.
There are 3 study visits for completing questionnaires. After the first study visit, participants will be put in the Mentoring Program or an Educational Program (there’s a 50/50 chance for each). The Mentoring Program is a year-long, one-on-one relationship with a mentor with group activities and a parent group. The Educational Program consists of bimonthly IBD educational group activities for a year.
