An eight-week support group for caregivers who have family or friends with a cancer diagnosis. This group may touch upon such topics as managing at home, relationships, and dealing with emotion.

Gilda’s Toronto offers 8-week support groups three times a year. Our support groups are run by mental health professionals who have a strong understanding of the unique needs of individuals who have been impacted by cancer.
Support groups are not operated on a drop-in basis. We encourage commitment to the entire 8-week. A commitment to the group helps to build community and allows for topics and conversations to be built on week by week.
