The mission of Invisible Illness Awareness Network is to: 

  • Increase awareness about invisible illnesses, especially through our easily adaptable education program designed for high schools, colleges, and other forms of higher education

  • Provide resources and support for the invisible illness community

  • Foster compassion and understanding between patients, providers, and the general population

  • Create a safe and supportive environment for those living with invisible illnesses

  • Reduce the stigma associated with invisible illnesses and Disabilities


Our vision is to improve the quality of life for patients and families affected by invisible illnesses. We also want to decrease the diagnostic delay for patients looking for answers, so people are not suffering for years without help.

Invisible Illness Awareness Network (IIAN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit run by volunteers that is striving to make the lives of those with invisible illnesses better. We are committed to raising awareness for invisible illnesses, especially for future and current healthcare professionals.
