Support groups

Support groups can provide friendship, compassion, caregiving tips, new ideas… and hope.

The CHEC provides a comfortable setting for people to gather and share information in groups devoted to everything from cancer support to mental health. Support groups are often the one place where others truly understand what you are experiencing. They also bridge you to local support and resources.
