Support Groups


Our support groups provide people with cancer and caregivers with a place to explore ways of coping with the stress of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.  Our licensed clinicians help support group participants learn how to take an active role in their own health and well-being.  Attendance at an orientation session is required prior to joining a group. All support groups are held at the Beaumont House in Bethesda unless indicated otherwise below.
