Gilda’s Club offer weekly and bi-weekly support groups facilitated by licensed mental health professionals. Our support groups provide a space to explore deeper individual and shared thoughts, feelings and experiences related to cancer.
Support groups are not drop-in activities and require attendance at a New Member Meeting, the completion of a Customized Membership Plan and approval from GCTC Program Staff to participate. A Customized Membership Plan is a one-on-one meeting with a Program Staff member to discuss your specific needs and what options and resources are available to you. These meetings are scheduled during New Member Meetings.
